Video Transcript

JUSTIN ADAMS: We're covering Colorado first on CBS4 News. Thanks for joining us. I'm Justin Adams. We are still trying to deal with the heavy losses Colorado has had this week. The Boulder community, the families and friends of the victims are dealing with unimaginable grief.

We now know the Memorial service for Officer Eric Talley is next Tuesday at the Flatirons Community Church in Lafayette. It's open to the public, but space will be limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. We'll carry it live on CBS in Denver.

The City of Boulder wants to honor the victims of the shooting and let those who are grieving in Colorado or elsewhere to show support. It's an ongoing memorial called Ten Together and it will start taking place tonight. There have been several vigils already. The City of Boulder knows more large gatherings are not safe right now. So to honor the victims, city officials are asking anyone and everyone to step out tonight to show how you can be Boulder Strong.

BRYAN BULLOCK: We'd love to bring our entire community together and have a large scale event where people could connect and mourn and grieve. That's really just not possible right now. At 8:00 PM, to take 10 minutes, a moment of silence, one minute for each of the lives lost. Take the time and reflect on those lives lost and the impact it had on our community and beyond.

JUSTIN ADAMS: Because not everyone can make at to Boulder for the memorials, this is a way to show support from home and organizers hope people can do it for the next ten nights in a row.

Tonight on CBS's 48 Hours it focuses on the kidnapping and murder of 12-year-old Jonelle Matthews. She was killed more than 35 years ago. Her case was cold for decades until her body was found in 2019 and police began to question a new suspect, Steve Pankey. CBS4's own Kelly Werthmann has covered this case for years and even pressed Pankey on a virtual call.

- Werthmann is a reporter and anchor for Denver's CBS station, KCNC. She also interviewed Pankey over FaceTime.

STEVE PANKEY: If I gave my DNA that would be kind of like a knockout blow.

KELLY WERTHMANN: He really wanted to make himself clear that he was framed. Did you kill Jonelle Matthews?

STEVE PANKEY: Absolutely not.

JUSTIN ADAMS: You can see Kelly's appearance and watch the investigative piece on Jonelle Matthews tonight at 9:00 right here on CBS4. We have more information on all these stories and all the latest headlines on our free 24 hour streaming news service, CBS in Denver. You'll find us all your favorite streaming device. Here's Callie with Colorado's First Weather.

CALLIE ZANANDRIE: Well, Justin, a beautiful start to your Saturday. And that storm system that pushed through last night brought some snow to the high country. The big winner, Steamboat, picking up 5 inches of fresh powder. Copper, Loveland, Winter Park, and Telluride, all picking up three inches, maybe two inches of snow.

So put the future cast into motion, high pressure builds in today, making way for mostly sunny skies and warm temperatures. That sticks around tomorrow. As we start your Sunday, very clear skies throughout the state and not a drop of moisture in sight. We'll take it after the week we've had with those three storm systems.

That stays through Monday. Now temperatures today will be in the 50s through the Denver metro area. Out on the Eastern plains we'll be in the mid 50s and up in the high country, 30s and 40s. On the Western Slope, 57 in Grand Junction.

Overnight tonight, we'll dip into the 20s here in the Denver metro area. Out on the Eastern plains 29 and Wray, 28 in Burlington, and on the Western Slope 32 in Grand Junction. And then tomorrow even warmer if you can believe it.

We'll be in the 60s here in the city. And across the state, warm weather and lots of sunshine. Now, take a look at the five day forecast. Monday, 73 degrees. We will see windier weather and then that will bring a change on Tuesday. We have a chance for snow. But April comes in with 60 degrees, and then by next weekend, we'll be back in the 70s.
