One Judge's Deadly Mistake


When Evan Ebel was killed in a roadside shootout in March, it was clear he was the man who'd days earlier gunned down the head of the Colorado prison system (and his wife) at their home's front door, then fled and killed another man while on the lam. Ebel shouldn't even have been free at the time – he was accidentally released from prison in January only because a judge's assistant mistakenly marked Ebel's multiple prison terms to be served "concurrently" instead of "consecutively," one after the other. The supervising judge extended condolences to the families of Ebel's victims.
