Former Husband Being Held Without Bond For Woman’s Death

May 15, 1985

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) _ The former husband of a woman who forecast her own death in a newspaper editorial was held without bond Wednesday on charges stemming from her slaying.

Defense attorneys for Blond Cole Hunter, 50, did not ask for a bond at an appearance by Hunter before Boulder District Judge Michael Enwall on charges in the shooting death this month of Jane Campbell, 51.

The judge then set a preliminary hearing for the week of June 10, and said Hunter would remain in the Boulder jail.

Mrs. Campbell was shot May 7, while filling her car tires at a service station in Longmont, when a car swerved through the station and several shots were fired.

Hunter turned himself in to police a short time later.

The shooting occurred just a little over a year after Mrs. Campbell had written in a guest editorial in the Longmont Times-Call about her flight from her husband.

″I am hiding for my own safety. I am forced to live away from my home and my family,″ she wrote. ″I do not and did not want to die... but I still feel I may at my husband’s hand.″

They were later divorced.
