E. Idaho man pleads not guilty in Emmett slaying
A 58-year-old eastern Idaho man has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the July stabbing of a saddle maker from Emmett.
Douglas Everett Anderson made an appearance in Third District Court recently in connection with his role in the slaying of 78-year-old Darole Carpenter. The Idaho Statesman reports (http://bit.ly/Hmg3Tb ) Anderson is also accused of forgery and three counts of theft.
Anderson is a former Emmett resident, but he was arrested Sept. 6 near his home in Lemhi County. He is accused of killing Carpenter on July 8 in an attempt to conceal he defrauded Carpenter out of nearly $30,000. Investigators say he agreed to buy cattle and hay with Carpenter's money but had no intention of carrying out the transactions.
Trial is scheduled for Feb. 5.
