Bond Increased for Man Charged in Lethal Meth Case
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) — A judge has increased the bond for a Spokane, Washington, man charged with forcing the grandson of a former Post Falls, Idaho, mayor to ingest a lethal dose of methamphetamine.
The Coeur d'Alene Press reports that Shaun Patrick Kelly's bond was set at $1 million last week after he was accused of stealing a van and eluding police while out on bail on a second-degree murder charge.
Prosecutors say he pointed a gun at Evan Larkin in 2015 and made him eat a fatal dose of meth to prove he wasn't a police informant.
He pleaded not guilty.
Kelly was in court Thursday after he was arrested for stealing a U-Haul truck in Spokane Valley and eluding police in Idaho. He was charged with grand theft and eluding.
Gardner filed a motion to increase the bond amount from $25,000. Kelly's lawyer didn't object.
