Governor John Hickenlooper’s decision Wednesday to indefinitely postpone Nathan Dunlap’s execution is raising questions about the other death penalty cases in Colorado.

Dunlap has been on death row for nearly 2 decades for murdering 4 people.

Two more men have been sentenced to die in the last 5 years.

To find out what happens to all these cases, we turned to University of Denver Law Professor Sam Kamin.

He's opposed to the death penalty himself and he’s studied the issue extensively.
