Four Suspects Arrested In Plummer Murder

SPOKANE, Wash. - Four Spokane-area residents are in custody for First-Degree Murder after sheriff's office investigators spent 12 hours locating and arresting them Sunday.

The four are suspects in a stabbing homicide that occurred early Sunday in Plummer, Idaho.  Idaho State Police investigators learned the four were headed back to Spokane following the killing and asked law enforcement here to find and arrest them.

Booked into the Spokane County Jail mid-day Sunday was 21-year-old Irael S. Kennedy, 22-year-old Stephen R. Milton and 40-year-old Kelly A. Miller. 

Sheriff's detectives and a SWAT team found and arrested the last suspect, 40-year-old Jody A. Miller, at a home in the 2400 block of West Dean about 7:20 p.m.  The hunt for Miller began about 7:20 a.m.

Miller's criminal history spans 31 years and qualifies him as an armed career criminal.

Details concerning the homicide were few Sunday, but Benewah County, Idaho authorities sent warrants charging each of the suspects with First-Degree Murder.  The four were booked into the Spokane County Jail on Fugitive from Justice charges.

Jody Miller and Kennedy were held on $1 million dollar bonds and Milton and Kelly Miller were held on $500,000 bonds.

The four reportedly began their Sunday celebrating Jody Miller's 40th birthday in downtown Spokane before driving to Plummer where the killing occurred.

Questions regarding the Plummer homicide should be directed to the Idaho State Police in Benewah County.
