Assault Case Has Extremist Elements

Court documents and police reports are painting a fuller picture in a peculiar Bonner County assault case. Little was known about the circumstances surrounding an incident in which a Vay landowner used a John Deere tractor to dismantle a home on his property with a woman and two children still inside. The episode resulted in three felony assault charges against Paul Fagerlie Finman, who faces trial in 1st District Court this fall. Court documents and other records, meanwhile, reveal that Finman, 56, was entangled in a dispute with an adherent of the sovereign citizen movement named Alexander Duncan Campbell. Finman inherited the entanglement with the property he purchased off Bandy Road in Vay. Campbell, his wife, son and daughter were living on a home on the ranch rent-free/Keith Kinnaird, Bee.

Babysitter Suspected In PF Assault

A 25-year-old baby sitter is suspected of critically injuring a 3-year-old boy at his Post Falls home on Monday. The woman told police she’d shoved the boy to the ground as she was changing his clothes after he urinated, said Post Falls police Lt. Greg McLean. Doctors said the boy had a bleeding skull fracture; police aren’t sure if he’ll survive. The woman, whose name has not been released, called 911 about 4:30 p.m. “because he was unresponsive,” McLean said. “According to her, it was probably within 10 minutes (of the incident). She tried to revive him”/Meghann Cuniff, SR. More here.
