Former Aspen homicide suspect’s record sealed

ASPEN, Colo. — The court record of a woman once accused in the death of a prominent Aspen resident is being permanently sealed.

Pitkin County District Judge Gail Nichols ruled Monday to seal the case file of Katherine Carpenter at her request.

Carpenter was one of three people originally charged in the death of Nancy Pfister. Charges against her were dropped after William Styler pleaded guilty to killing her alone.

The Aspen Times (http://bit.ly/1pMl6hT) reports that Colorado doesn’t expunge criminal record but that sealing Carpenter’s record will have a similar effect. Prosecutor Andrea Bryan says it will allow Carpenter to tell potential employers that she was never arrested.

However, information about Carpenter’s arrest and the original allegations against her were also included in Styler’s court record and will remain there.
