Douglas DA to push for death in dragging fatality

CASTLE ROCK (Colorado) — Douglas County prosecutors are proceeding with seeking the death penalty in the case of a man accused of dragging his girlfriend to death behind his car.

The mangled body of Jose Luis Rubi-Nava’s 49-year-old girlfriend, Luz Maria Franco Fierros, was found September 2006 near Castle Rock. She had a nylon strap around her neck, and her body lay at the end of a 1½ mile trail of blood.
