Jul. 26, 2017
OROFINO, Idaho (AP) — A northern Idaho woman has denied killing a woman who became involved with her former boyfriend.
The Lewiston Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2uBToN2) that 31-year-old Jessica L. Colpitts pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder Tuesday in 2nd District Court.
Authorities say Colpitts was angry that Samantha S. Fignani had become involved with Colpitts' former boyfriend.
A witness previously testified driving Colpitts to Fignani's house on May 22 and that Colpitts shot and killed Fignani with a shotgun.
A scheduling conference is planned for Aug. 15 to set a timetable for hearing dates.
Colpitts is being held in the Clearwater County Jail on a $500,000 bond.
