    GREELEY, Colo. — A black plume of smoke was seen pouring into Greeley Friday afternoon, and a wastewater storage tank fire was the cause. The fire burned for several hours before going out Friday night. While a Greeley dispatch spokesperson did confirm crews were battling this blaze just east of the Greeley Airport, he was unable to confirm reports that an explosion preceded the fire and that this all may have been caused by a lightning strike. The tank that […]

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Colorado’s budding marijuana industry will soon have a new home on your radio dial. And to say they’re leaning into their new material might be an understatement. Enter the re-branded Colorado Springs station K-HIGH, which has found a home on the AM station 1580 for listeners down south (not be be confused with KHIH, an internet radio station playing contemporary jazz in Denver).

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — It was a long, grueling process that has finally come to an end. And because of the extensive amount of time the Arapahoe County District Court spent with each of the final 24 jurors seated for the Aurora theater shooting case on Tuesday, those present for the open courtroom sessions were privy to a bevy of information about those who will be deciding this case. FOX31 was in the courtroom for the great majority of that process, from the first […]

    93 remain in theater shooting jury pool with one day of selection to go

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Some claimed new hardship. Others claimed a change of heart about their ability to be impartial. Some voiced claims the judge felt were credible. Others shed what the judge felt were crocodile tears. Regardless, even after excusing 19 potential jurors during the first day of group questioning in the Aurora theater shooting case on Monday, the presiding Arapahoe County District court still had 93 potential jurors remaining to fill 24 seats in the final stage of jury […]

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. – The Arapahoe County District Court trying the Aurora theater shooting case has retained around 100 jurors as of this week, but that number remains fluid, as previously retained jurors continue to call and write the court claiming undue hardships that, in their estimaton, should disqualify them from the jury pool. District Court Judge Carlos Samour Jr. put his foot down regarding these jurors on Tuesday, saying it seems to him they’re experiencing second thoughts about serving on […]

    DENVER — A Denver man who plead guilty to attacking a taxi driver, fleeing in that driver’s taxi and plowing over a pedestrian in the process was sentenced to 8 years in prison Friday. The incident took place in the early morning hours of March 16, 2014, when Curt Glinton, now 24, attacked a taxi driver and a bystander in the area of 44th Avenue and Tejon Street following a heated argument regarding a cab fare.

    Wilkins family rejects donation after State Rep. calls baby cut from womb ‘act of God’

    LONGMONT, Colo. — State Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt refused to apologize Thursday after calling the death of an unborn Longmont child who was cut out of a pregnant woman’s stomach an ‘act of God.’ On Friday, the family of Michelle Wilkins, the victim in the bizarre and tragic case, refunded a $1,000 donation from Klingenschmitt, R-Colorado Springs, that was intended to help fund Wilkins’ recovery.

    SANTA MONICA, Calif. — The Santa Monica hills are apparently alive with the sound of music. How the source of sound got up the hill, however, became an entirely separate mystery — one that seemed to have been solved Friday. On Thursday, hikers flocked to the so-called Santa Monica Mountains — clearly some Coloradans would dispute this particular 1,500-foot overlook’s status as a “mountain” — to behold, ponder and even sit down a play the upright piano that mysteriously appeared earlier in the […]

    CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Jury selection in the Aurora theater shooting case saw an unprecedented moment Monday morning. It set the tone for an uncanny day overall, and Arapahoe County District Court Judge Carlos Samour Jr. summed it up succinctly. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a husband and wife end up in the same jury pool before,” Samour said. “Then again, I’ve never issued 9,000 jury summonses for a trial before.” But the duo didn’t just end up in the […]
