Moderate snow continues to fall for some areas of northern El Paso and Teller Counties, accumulating in the grass and yards. Meanwhile, in the plains and along the southern I-25 stretch, light rain/snow mix continues. Take it slow on the roadways - due to VERY strong winds, we are seeing blowing dirt and snow (depending on the region), which is tremendously reducing visibility.

Defense attorneys blame a 16-year-old for masterminding the November 2002 murder of a Crystola couple.
A jury was seated Thursday and opening statements began in the trial of one of two men accused of killing Gary Alflen and Stacy Lee Dahl.
In their statement, defense attorneys for 22-year-old Michael Paprocki blamed co-defendant, 18-year-old Josiah Ivy, for planning the killings. They claim the then 20-year Paprocki only wanted to rob the victims, while the then 16-year-old Ivy wanted to kill them.
Prosecutors argue both defendants are equally responsible for the slayings.
Ivy will have a competency hearing in October to determine whether he's mentally fit to stand trial.
