DURANGO» A Colorado man accused of killing his 13-year-old son is appearing in court for a two-week hearing to determine what evidence will be allowed at trial and where the trial will be.
Chief District Judge Jeffrey Wilson began hearing from the defense and prosecution this week on hundreds of motions in the case against Mark Redwine. He has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in the death of his son, Dylan.

Standoff along I-70 began with stabbing.
JUNCTION» A standoff that shut down Interstate 70 for more than two hours started after authorities say a man cut the throat of another man trying to help him after a car crash.
Two men agreed to give 38-year-old Justin Madrid and a co-worker a ride back to the car along I-70 near Rifle on Tuesday.
According to court documents, when one of the helpers said he didn’t think it could be driven, Madrid allegedly cut him. The victim’s co-worker then stabbed Madrid in the arm.
Madrid fled to a hillside and refused to surrender. Authorities say the highway was closed to avoid the possibility of shots being fired near traffic.
