DENVER (AP) — A man who was among the first officers to respond to the Aurora restaurant where four people were slain in 1993 says the convicted killer should be executed.
Dan Jones, who is now retired, tells KUSA-TV in Denver (http://on9news.tv/11cbHk4 ) that Gov. John Hickenlooper "passed the buck" when he granted Nathan Dunlap an indefinite reprieve from execution Wednesday. Hickenlooper stopped short of granting Dunlap clemency, which would have spared him the death penalty.
A new governor could revisit Dunlap's case.
Jones says Dunlap should pay the consequences of killing four people and wounding one at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant after hours.
Bobby Stephens was the lone survivor. He says Dunlap smiled when he shot Stephens and believes Dunlap is smiling now that Hickenlooper has granted him a reprieve.
