Update: Denver police are still looking for a suspect who critically injured a man in a shooting near 14th and Krameria early yesterday morning; see our previous coverage below. But even without an arrest, the case has already generated a strange twist. The incident was witnessed, in a manner of speaking, by Sheldon Chrysler, whose failed lawsuits against self-proclaimed radio Troubleshooter Tom Martino (who called him a "waste of skin") were covered extensively in this space. Chrysler is now homeless and was just drifting off to sleep in his car, where he now lives, when gunfire rang out mere feet away.

Sir Mario Owens: False Evidence in Death-Penalty Case a "New Low," Defense Claims

sir.mario.owens.565x300.jpg
Sir Mario Owens.
Determined to demonstrate just how far he believed Arapahoe County prosecutors had strayed over the line in the effort to obtain the death penalty against his client, defense attorney Jim Castle resorted to a visual aid. During a hearing late Friday, he presented District Judge Gerald Rafferty with a wheeled cart piled with documents that he said prosecutors were obligated to turn over to the defense before trial but failed to do so -- a transgression of due-process rights known as a Brady violation.

"There are so many violations in this case, I can't cover them all," Castle said. "How did this happen? This shouldn't happen. If it's allowed, we will accept a new low for justice in Colorado."

First, Stephany Bauderer was reported as having been kidnapped. Next, word went out that she'd been found safe as law enforcers continued to search for her alleged abductor. And then, reports surfaced that police had arrested her on unrelated warrants.

That's a lot of ups and downs -- but judging by Bauderer's Facebook postings about Montoya, their relationship has been a similar kind of roller coaster for quite a while. Photos and details below.
