Accused Coeur d'Alene pastor shooter booked into Kootenai County Jail

An Idaho man accused of shooting a pastor is heading to court after attempts at mediation failed.


The Coeur d'Alene Press reports  that 30-year-old Kyle Odom could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted on charges associated with the March shooting of Pastor Tim Remington in a Coeur d'Alene church parking lot.


Kootenai County Prosecutor Barry McHugh says the two sides couldn't agree on a plea deal during a Wednesday mediation session. A retired district judge served as a mediator during the session.


Mediation sessions are kept completely confidential.


Prosecutors say Odom shot Remington on March 6 and flew to Washington, D.C., the next day. He was arrested by Secret Service agents after being seen throwing flash drives and other items over the White House fence.
