Chuck E. Cheese killer Nathan Dunlap faces execution for a killing he committed 20 years ago, PIX 11 reported Tuesday.
Dunlap received the death penalty for killing four people in a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant in 1993. The restaurant was in Aurora, Colorado, a city linked in the minds of many as the scene of the tragic July 2012 theater shooting that left 12 dead.
Dunlap, 38, is Colorado’s longest-serving death-row prisoner. His last appeal to avoid death was quashed by the U.S. Supreme Court Tuesday morning. The high court opted not to hear the case.
Authorities plan to set a date for Dunlap’s execution. Colorado has not put a person to death since 1995.
Dunlap was fired from Chuck E. Cheese restaurant when he was just 19-years-old. He went back to the restaurant and shoot and killed four of his former co-workers.
