On Thursday, Oct. 12, 2023, at the Adams County Court in Brighton, Sheneen McClain waits for a verdict in the trial of officers Randy Roedema and Jason Rosenblatt, who are facing manslaughter, criminally negligent reckless homicide and assault charges for the death of her son, Elijah McClain.

One trial ends with split verdicts for two Aurora police officers and the next trial is beginning in the death of Elijah McClain. We'll take a closer look at police accountability and changes to Colorado law. Then, we speak with a Colorado doctor who is in Gaza, unable to leave. And the U.S. Forest Service is rethinking housing on Forest Service land.
