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...
(Limon-AP) -- An inmate accused of killing a prison worker did
so because he wanted to be transferred to another jail.
That's according to an affidavit released yesterday.
Corrections officials say Edward Montour Junior wielded a
kitchen ladle to randomly kill Eric Autobee -- a worker at a state
prison in Limon. The attack occurred on Friday.
The affidavit says Montour's homemade knife had been found on
another inmate and that he didn't want to risk having inmates think
he had ratted out another convict.
The 35-year-old prisoner allegedly decided he needed to kill a
staffer so he would be moved to another facility.
Autobee was the first prison employee to be killed in the line
of duty since 1929. A funeral Mass was held this morning at Saint
Joseph Catholic Church in Pueblo.
