DENVER (AP) -- Opponents of the death penalty are trying to persuade Gov. John Hickenlooper to grant clemency to death-row inmate Nathan Dunlap.
Records obtained by the Denver Post show Dunlap's attorneys and members of the public are hoping to sway Hickenlooper's decision because of possible signs that the governor's position on the issue has wavered. Hickenlooper has not said what he plans to do.
Dunlap killed four people at a Colorado Chuck E. Cheese restaurant in 1993 and was sentenced to death.
He is Colorado's longest-serving death-row inmate, and could become the first inmate executed in the state since 1995 after the U.S. Supreme Court recently rejected his appeals.
