Decision on Clerical Error for Death Penalty Case

CENTENNIAL - An Arapahoe County judge may decide as soon as this week whether a clerical error should prevent prosecutors from seeking death for an inmate accused of killing a witness.

Attorneys for Robert Keith Ray argued their case before District Judge Gerald J. Rafferty on Friday, at times criticizing District Attorney Carol Chambers, chief prosecutor for the 18th Judicial District, for naming the wrong man in a notice to seek the death penalty.

"I can't believe that Carol Chambers would not put those notices right before her eyes," said Ray's attorney, Hollis Whitson.
