Chopsticks & Sushi closed for now...and maybe for good

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.
