Judge in 1982 murder cases says he will not allow records to stay sealed indefinitely

The Denver Gazette: Defense attorneys and prosecutors in the case of a 70-year-old man accused of killing two women near Breckenridge in 1982 made their case to a Park County judge on Friday afternoon for sealing case records from the public.

Alan Lee Phillips, who had been living in Dumont in Clear Creek County and working as a semi-retired mechanic before his arrest on Feb. 24, according to law enforcement, faces two counts each of first-degree kidnapping, first-degree assault and first-degree murder. 

Annette Schnee, 21, and Barbara Jo Oberholtzer, 29, both worked in Breckenridge and were last seen on Jan. 6, 1982. They had no apparent connection besides their accused killer.
