Harold Henthorn Moved Out Of Colorado

By Brian Maass

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) - Harold Henthorn, the Highlands Ranch man convicted last year of murdering his second wife, has been transferred from Colorado to a federal prison in Oklahoma City.

According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website, Henthorn has been moved from a federal facility in Englewood to FTC Oklahoma City, an administrative security federal transfer center.

A federal jury convicted Henthorn last September of shoving Toni Henthorn off a cliff in Rocky Mountain National Park during an anniversary hike in 2012. Last December, Henthorn was sentenced to life in prison. He has however maintained his innocence and is appealing his conviction.

Law enforcement authorities also suspect Henthorn killed his first wife, Lynn, in Douglas County in 1995, but he has not been charged in that case.

Harold Henthorn had been housed in Colorado since his arrest in November of 2014.

Indications are the Oklahoma City prison will not be Henthorn's final stop. FTC Oklahoma City is characterized as a holdover facility for federal inmates who are being transferred to other facilities. The prison houses 1,388 prisoners, both male and female.
