- WHITMAN COUNTY (WASH.) SHERIFF'S OFFICE
- John Lee, 29, is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and aggravated battery.
"He had no expressions," said Michael Chin. "It was kind of distant, very cold."
Before the day was done, three people would be dead and Lee would lead law enforcement on a high-speed chase into Washington State.
This morning's Lewiston Tribune reports that Chin's testimony before Latah County Magistrate John C. Judge was part of a preliminary hearing for Lee, who faces three counts of first-degree murder and aggravated battery.If convicted, he faces the possibility of life behind bars or the death penalty.
"I believe that if he wanted to kill me at that time, he would have done so," testified Chin.
Ultimately, Lee was bound over to Idaho's 2nd District Court to stand trial. His arraignment there is set for Tuesday, August 4th.
