An Aspen judge has decided to release most of the court documents related to an Aspen murder case. They'll be made public this Thursday, June 12th. The decision comes as attorneys on all sides are getting ready to argue what they believe happened to Aspen native Nancy Pfister, who died earlier this year.
Judge Gail Nichols has decided to unseal a long list of motions filed by each of the three defendants and other documents. Today Judge Nichols still ordered some of the earliest, most detailed documents stay under wraps until early next month. That’s when a preliminary hearing is scheduled to finish. Nancy and William Styler, formerly of the Front Range, and longtime resident Kathy Carpenter are charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder against Nancy Pfister.
You can read the order here, and see Exhibit A here. Documents in Exhibit A will be released Thursday, June 12th, unless they are marked "KEEP SEALED." The latter will be released after the preliminary hearing, which is scheduled to begin June 25th and end Wednesday, July 2nd.
