DENVER (AP) -- Colorado prison officials and the courts will need to clarify when multiple sentences are supposed to be served at the same time or one after the other, after an error led to the early release of an inmate suspected of killing the state's prison chief.
A bill signed into law Tuesday requires the Department of Corrections to seek clarification from courts when it's not specified how an offender is to serve two or more sentences.
The law is a response to the case of Evan Ebel, the suspect in the March killing of Tom Clements.
Colorado prison officials and the courts will need to clarify when sentences are supposed to be served concurrently or consecutively after an error led to the early release of an inmate suspected of killing the state's prison chief.
He was released four years early.
