Judge may release Ramsey indictment
BOULDER — Boulder County officials who have resisted releasing documents in a 1999 indictment related to the killing of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey now say they’re willing to open them up.
Chief Trial Deputy Sean Finn wrote Friday that the district attorney’s office will disclose anything a judge deems appropriate. The legal response came a day after a Weld County judge ruled that releasing the indictment would not breach grand jury secrecy rules.
A reporter for The Camera newspaper and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press filed a lawsuit last month to see the records (http://bit.ly/1aXl9hO ).
A Boulder County grand jury voted in 1999 to indict the slain 6-year-old’s parents on charges of child abuse resulting in death. Then-DA Alex Hunter refused to sign the document and prosecute the Ramseys.
