Defense opposes unsealing Aspen murder case documents

ASPEN, Colo. - Attorneys for three people accused of killing a prominent Aspen woman have informally told the judge in the case they oppose the prosecution's motion to unseal the arrest warrant and other documents.

The Aspen Daily News reports Pitkin County District Court Judge Gail Nichols has given attorneys for William Styler, his wife Nancy Styler and Kathy Carpenter until Wednesday to formally respond to the motion.

Carpenter and the Stylers are charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of 57-year-old Nancy Pfister, whose body was found in a closet at her West Buttermilk home after Carpenter called 911 on Feb. 26.

District Attorney Sherry Caloia says with no more suspects expected to be arrested, there's no reason for the case to be closed.
