CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colorado (KDVR) — A former Clear Creek County legislator charged with the death of Christian Glass, a young man who was killed after calling 911 for help, appeared in court for the first time on Monday.
Andrew Buen and Kyle Gould have been charged with murdering a 22-year-old the night before Thanksgiving and both have been fired.
The judge also approved a change in Gould’s bond, which asked him to travel with his family to Lake Havasu this holiday to visit his father. Prosecutors did not file legal challenges to the request, but did do so on behalf of the Glass family.
“They wanted to spend the holidays with their families and wanted to spend the holidays with Christian, but were unable to do so because of defendant’s actions,” the deputy district attorney said. Steve Potts said.
Potts said the Glass family is actually leaving the country for the holidays due to the death of their son. Gould’s attorneys argued that he was not a flight risk.
Buen and Gould’s next trial was scheduled for January 30th.
Glass died on June 10th. A 22-year-old man had called 911 for help after his car became trapped in his Silver Plume. A video released months after the shooting showed him expressing fear and erratic behavior during a standoff that lasted over an hour before he was killed.
Buen, who fired the shot that killed Glass, was charged with second-degree murder, misdemeanor obstruction of justice, and misdemeanor reckless endangerment. Gould was charged with manslaughter and misdemeanor reckless endangerment.
