Couple charged with murder in Aspen killing

ASPEN — Prosecutors have filed first-degree murder charges against a couple arrested in the killing of a prominent Aspen woman.

The Aspen Times reports 65-year-old William F. Styler III and 62-year-old Nancy Christine Styler were charged Monday in connection with the death of 57-year-old Nancy Pfister.

Over the weekend, authorities arrested a third suspect in Pfister’s death — 56-year-old Katherine Carpenter.

Pfister was the daughter of the late Betty and Art Pfister, longtime prominent Aspen residents who co-founded the Buttermilk ski area west of town.

The Stylers rented Pfister’s home until she returned home from traveling in Australia last month. Carpenter called police to report finding Pfister’s body in a closet in the home on Feb. 26.
