The Nevada Supreme Court on Friday denied a motion by a murder suspect fighting extradition to Colorado, reaffirming the court’s earlier decision warranting extradition.

Alex Christopher Ewing, a Nevada prison inmate, is a suspect in fatal attacks from January 1984 that terrorized Front Range residents.

On Friday the Nevada Supreme Court denied Ewing’s motion to stay, pending his petition to the U.S. Supreme Court fighting his extradition to Colorado.

The state of Nevada on Feb. 3 filed opposition to Ewing’s motion, claiming in part that it was nothing more than a “deliberate delay to the conclusion of these proceedings … to face the pending charges.”

Ewing is wanted in Arapahoe and Jefferson counties to face multiple murder charges after a cold case DNA match identified him as a suspect in July 2018. He also faces sexual assault and robbery charges in Colorado as part of the cases against him.
