Prosecutor: Woman rolled man's body in comforter after shooting
GARDEN CITY, Idaho (KBOI) - Ada County Prosecutors say a 21-year-old woman shot a man from behind, rolled his body into a bedding comforter and eventually hid the body under the house.
The grusome allegations were presented in Jordan Marie Shaver's first court appearance Monday. She's been charged with the first degree murder of 49-year-old Brian Barton Geddes.
Officials say Geddes 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 Friday afternoon in Garden City. Officers arrived to find that the resident, Jordan Marie Shaver, 21, had fled the house just minutes before their arrival.
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.
Prosecutors also said in court that 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.
A judge denied Shaver's bond and ordered her back in court for a preliminary hearing Nov. 19.
