John Lee files another appeal with Idaho Supreme Court

The 31-year-old Moscow man filed the handwritten, six-page document this week in Latah County 2nd District Court. The appeal alleges that police and the Latah County prosecutor “purposefully sabotaged” his court case by continuing to withhold about $11,000 of his cash seized as evidence. Judge John R. Stegner denied a motion to release evidence earlier this month.

Lee entered Alford pleas in March to three counts of first-degree murder and one count of aggravated battery, stemming from the January 2015 shooting spree that left three people dead and injured a fourth. The victims were Lee’s adoptive mother, Terri L. Grzebielski, 61; Lee’s landlord, David M. Trail, 76; and Moscow Arby’s manager Belinda G. Niebuhr, 47. Seattle resident Michael M. M. Chin, 40, was injured. Full story.
