DENVER (AP) - The mother of a Colorado teenager shot and killed 19 years ago is pleading with the governor to allow the convicted killer's execution to go on as planned.

Sandi Rogers, mother of Ben Grant, wrote a letter to Gov. John Hickenlooper asking him not to grant clemency to Nathan Dunlap, who is scheduled to be executed the week of Aug. 18.

Rogers' letter was released Tuesday by prosecutors.

Grant was 17 when he and three other employees of a Chuck E. Cheese pizza restaurant were ambushed and shot to death in 1993.

A jury convicted Dunlap in 1996 and sentenced him to die. Dunlap has exhausted his guaranteed appeals and asked Hickenlooper for clemency.

Hickenlooper's spokesman said Tuesday the governor hasn't made his decision. Dunlap has acknowledged killing the four.
