A judge has decided the execution for condemned killer Nathan Dunlap will take place during the week of August 18 and 24.
Dunlap was a 19-year-old former employee when he walked into a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant in Aurora in 1993 at closing time and shot five people in the head, before taking $1,500 from a safe.
The judge will give the defense a chance to argue that the execution is cruel and unusual punishment.
Arapahoe County Chief Judge William Sylvester announced his decision after taking an hour to consider arguments from the attorneys involved in the case.
The Department of Corrections will be responsible for selecting the exact date and time for the execution.
