Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
Lawyers for three Fort Carson soldiers charged with pushing two Iraqis into a river say prosecutors are hurting their case by refusing immunity for three potential witnesses.
Defense attorneys say the soldiers' commanders are demanding immunity before they'll testify at a hearing to determine whether the soldiers are court-martialed.
The commanders were all given nonjudicial punishments for allegedly conspiring to impede the investigation into the drowning.
That means they did not face criminal charges or jail time.
The officer presiding over today's hearing ordered prosecutors to explain whether they offered immunity to defense witnesses and why.
Prosecutors did not immediately respond.
Two prosecution witnesses have already been granted immunity.
The soldiers are all assigned to the Third Brigade Combat Team based at Fort Carson, Colorado.
The brigade is part of the Fourth Infantry Division based at
Fort Hood, Texas.
