The Weld County District Attorney, who had until last Friday to file charges against Cory Hixson, has filed a 30 day extension to have more time to consider the case. Hixson was arrested, accused of breaking into a home in the Greeley area earlier this month. Days earlier Hixson went missing from his home in Broomfield after he experienced adverse effects when the VA changed his medication. Hixson was awarded a Purple Heart after being injured fighting in Iraq. A representative from the DA’s office said the extension will give them the opportunity consider all the factors involved with the complex matter.
