- John Lee, 29, is charged with the multiple murder counts in connection with a January shooting spree.
KHQ-TV reports that Lee pleaded innocent to the multiple murder charges Aug. 4 and Latah County 2nd District Judge John Stegner set pretrial motions for Feb. 16 and jury selection for the trail set for May 2.
Lee is accused of killing his mother, landlord, and a former supervisor at a Moscow Arby's restaurant in three separate shooting incidents. He's also accused of shooting and seriously injuring a fourth man who happened to be meeting with Lee's landlord at the time of the incident.
If convicted, Lee faces possible life in prison or the death penalty. The minimum sentence for first-degree murder is 10 years in prison. Lee also faces up to 15 years in prison and a $50,000 fine for aggravated battery, if he is found guilty. The charges also carry an additional 15-year prison sentence for committing the alleged crime with a firearm. Prosecutors have not yet indicated if they will pursue the death penalty.
