Grand Jury indicts 21-year-old woman for first degree murder
GARDEN CITY, Idaho (KBOI) - An Ada County Grand Jury has indicted a 21-year-old woman on first degree murder as well as several felonies related to the alleged crime.
Ada County Prosecutors say 21-year-old Jordan Marie Shaver shot and killed Brian Barton Geddes back in October. Officials say Geddes, 49, was last seen alive Oct. 16.
Police were investigating a lead in Geddes' disappearance that led them to a house in the 5100 block of Elaynea Lane in Garden City. Officers arrived to find that the resident, Jordan Marie Shaver, 21, had fled the house just minutes before their arrival.
Officials say Shaver shot Geddes from behind, put the body in a bedding comforter and then hid the body under the house.
Police searched the area and found Shaver nearly an hour later near the Walmart near by Glenwood and State Street. She was taken into custody on an unrelated warrant for failure to appear, police said.
Ada County Prosecutor Ben Harmer told KBOI-TV on Wednesday that Shaver has also been indicted on robbery, grand theft and failure to report Geddes' death.
Prosecutors say Shaver stole money from Geddes and purchased items for nearly two weeks. She also apparently talked to the victim's family to help cover up the alleged crime and disappearance.
Police were able to find her as she was using the victim's cell phone, prosecutors said.
Harmer says on top of the new felonies for the murder charge, Shaver faces grand theft, possession of stolen property and a burglary charge for an un-related incident at the Boise Towne Square Mall.
Shaver is schedule to be back in court Jan. 4
