Colorado inmate released on parole because of coronavirus arrested in fatal Denver shooting

Colorado Sun:

A man who was released from prison last month on parole following policies enacted by Gov. Jared Polis to prevent an outbreak of the new coronavirus among inmates has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a woman last weekend in Denver. 

Cornelius Haney, 40, is accused of first-degree murder in the slaying of 21-year-old Heather Perry near the intersection of East Colfax Avenue and Verbena Street on May 9. 

Haney was released on April 15, four months early, under an executive order by Polis before that allows inmates to be released on “special-needs parole.”
