  1. Defense Claims Government Misconduct in Death-Penalty CaseRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday | Denver Westword

That controversial move has made this fall's gubernatorial election a kind of referendum on the state's seldom-used death penalty -- and has brought renewed national scrutiny of the Dunlap case, including "Eye For an Eye," a thoughtful episode of CNN's Death Row Stories series that airs this Sunday night. 2 comments
