BOISE — The U.S. Marshals service has taken 21-year-old Shawn Michael Buroker into custody in Asotin County, Wash.

Buroker is on probation with the Idaho Department of Correction and department officials said he reportedly threatened to kill the law enforcement officers that he believes killed his father in Spokane eight years ago. (Read the 2002 story.)

Buroker was sentenced in January to three years probation for conspiracy to commit burglary in Nez Perce County. He moved to Washington state in March under an interstate supervision agreement.
