Second District Judge Jeff Brudie set bail for Silas Parks on Thursday, following a decision by Latah County prosecutors last month to not seek the death penalty in the case.
     
Parks is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of first-degree arson in connection with the June 24 death of his pregnant wife, 28-year-old Sarah J. Parks.
