COURT DOCUMENTS: McVicker Decided To 'Dismember And Get Rid Of The Body' Instead Of Call 911 For Help

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane County judge set Jeremy McVicker's bond at one million dollars following his arrest for manslaughter Tuesday in a shooting that left 19 year old Dylan Heinen dead. McVicker's arraignment is set for February 12th.

According to court documents it all started when officers responded to a call at 4:50 Tuesday morning reporting that someone was shot in the head. When officers arrived they found that to be true and Dylan Heinen was dead. Spokane County Medical Examiner Dr. Sally Aiken later determined the cause of death to be a single gunshot wound to the left side of the head. According to court documents Dr. Aiken went on to say that Heinen suffered "approximately 40 sharp instrument blows to the back of his neck and head. Those injuries were consistent with a hatchet." According to court documents Dr. Aiken concluded that Heinen was likely deceased prior to the strikes from the hatchet.  

McVicker initially told detectives that they had been drinking and Heinen had committed suicide. We later learned that wasn't true. McVicker's original story to detectives stated that he didn't know what to do after the apparent suicide so he decided "they should dismember him and get rid of the body." 

McVicker later admitted that he was playing with the gun and pointed the gun at Heinen's head when it went off accidentally. According to court documents, McVicker said he did not know what to do at that point. He did not call an emergency response, rather deciding to "dismember and get rid of the body." Detectives asked McVicker why he tried to decapitate Heinen. McVicker said, according to court documents, he did not want to be arrested for manslaughter and have to do the next "20 years in prison." A Spokane County judge set Jeremy McVicker’s bond at one million dollars following his arrest for manslaughter Tuesday in a shooting that left 19 year old Dylan Heinen dead. McVicker's arraignment is set for February 12th.

McVicker remains at the Spokane County jail Wednesday night.
