A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
The measure brings state law into compliance with a recent U-S
Supreme Court ruling. It replaces the current system in which
three-judge panels determine sentences for convicted killers.
The bill requires a unanimous jury vote to sentence someone to
die. It was sent to Governor Owens, who is expected to sign the
measure before the week is over.
Earlier, lawmakers killed a bill that would have allowed a 10-2
vote to impose the death penalty and another that would have
required juries to determine if there were aggravating factors.
