Police Shooting Homeowner

In this March 8 file photo Colorado State Sen. Rhonda Fields, D-Aurora, makes a point during debate on the floor of the chamber in the State Capitol in Denver. Fields, whose district includes Aurora, said she wants statewide requirements for evaluating when officers can return to work after shooting someone on the job.

The Colorado Supreme Court has upheld the attempted murder conviction of a man who is on death row for the related killing of a state senator's son.

The Denver Post reports that the court upheld the 2006 attempted first-degree murder conviction of Robert Ray for shooting two men at a music festival in 2004.

Ray was later sentenced to death row for killing one of the attempted murder victims, Javad Marshall-Fields, and his fiancée.

Marshall-Fields, who is the son of Democratic state Sen. Rhonda Fields, was scheduled to be a witness in Ray's attempted murder trial.

Ray was also found guilty of first-degree assault on the attempted murder victims and of accessory to the murder of another man who was fatally shot on the night of the music festival.
