  A charge of murder has been dropped against one of three defendants in the murder of long-time Aspen local Nancy Pfister.  Pitkin County Judge Gail Nichols today (6-17-2014) dismissed the murder charge against Nancy Styler .  Mrs. Styler will also be moved back to the Pitkin County jail from Eagle where she has been incarcerated without bond. There she will be processed and then released. Three members of the Pfister family were included in the hearing this afternoon when the charges were dismissed. The District Attorney's motion to dismiss came because prosecutors say there is not enough evidence to convict Nancy Styler in the case. We’ll have more on this breaking story soon.
