District Attorney disputes Sheriff's Office claims

The El Paso County District Attorney says there is not enough evidence to file charges against anyone else connected to the murder of Department of Corrections(DOC) Chief Tom Clements.

Dan May made this statement Tuesday after the El Paso County Sheriff's office says it requested new charges against "co-conspirators" in last year's murder.

Clements was shot point blank at his home in Monument a year ago.

DOC inmate, Evan Ebel, was named as the prime suspect. Ebel was later killed in a shootout with Texas authorities while on the run.

The sheriff's office will not name the suspects they believe are linked to Clements killing, but they claim the charges are directly related to his murder.

Ebel was a member of the 211 crew, a white supremacist prison gang. The Sheriff's Office says it was their belief from the beginning that Ebel did not act alone, both the sheriff's office and the District Attorney say this remains an open investigation.
