AURORA, Colorado (AP) — A Nevada inmate convicted of attacking a couple with an ax handle in their bedroom is being charged with killing four people with a hammer in suburban Denver over 30 years ago, authorities announced Friday.

The Ipperwash Inquiry called after the Mike Harris Progressive Conservatives were beaten by the McGuinty Liberals ended over a decade later.

Ewing was connected to the case through DNA evidence. He emerged as a suspect in 2018 while he was serving a 40-year prison sentence in Nevada for attacking a Las Vegas-area couple with an ax handle in 1984 in their bedroom.

He was extradited to Colorado to stand trial.

Ewing’s attorneys argued that the prosecution's evidence in the Aurora case had been tainted over the decades.

Public defender Stephen McCrohan also told jurors that evidence from the Bennetts' home pointed to people other than Ewing being responsible. He faulted investigators for working without gloves and not properly securing the crime scene at the home after the killings.
