DENVER, Colo. -

Attorneys for condemned killer Nathan Dunlap are asking the Colorado Court of Appeals to provide details on how an execution would be carried out in Colorado and allow public input on the process.

According to the Denver Post, Dunlap's legal team contends that a Department of Corrections document spelling out details of how an inmate would be executed should be tossed out because it was compiled without public input.

Arguing on behalf of the state, Assistant Attorney General Chris Alber said execution procedures fall under the duties of the prisons director in managing the department. Alber said that exempts the document from rules requiring public input.

Dunlap was a 19-year-old former employee of Chuck E. Cheese when he killed the night manager of the restaurant and three teenage employees
