Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The lights are on and the Open sign still hangs by the door at 1630 Welton Street, but that door is locked tight and the phone, which no one answered last week, is now disconnected.

Looks like Chopsticks & Sushi is officially closed. But then, owner Yan De Yang is in jail, charged with first-degree murder in connection with a slaying October 22 at his restaurant. Read Michael Roberts's report on the formal charges here.

Yang has a November 4 appearance scheduled in Denver District Court.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
