Salida, Colo. (AP) Chaffee's county attorney is considering asking a judge to order the district attorney to file charges in the case of a woman who suspiciously fell to her death.
County attorney Jennifer Davis made the announcement Tuesday after district attorney Thom LeDoux said there was not enough evidence to charge two suspects in the 2004 death of Nancy mason.
Police arrested 33-year-old Efren Gallegos and a warrant was issued for mason's husband, 53-year-old Dan mason. Mason’s death was originally ruled an accident but two weeks ago a jury said it was a homicide.
She died after falling from a 10-foot cliff into a stream. The warrant for mason has been canceled and Gallegos was ordered released from jail.
Davis says she will consult with the coroner and sheriff before making a decision.
