Trial set for man accused of killing pregnant woman in Idaho cabin

JACKSON, Wyo. – A Wyoming man charged in the July 2016 shooting deaths of his girlfriend and her unborn baby at a cabin in Idaho is scheduled to go to trial in June 2019.

The Jackson Hole News & Guide reported Erik Ohlson, of Jackson, Wyoming, has pleaded not guilty to two counts of first-degree murder, among other charges.

Prosecutors said he went to 39-year-old Jennifer Nalley’s cabin near Driggs, Idaho, and shot her multiple times with a .45-caliber handgun.

Attorney Billie Siddoway, a prosecutor in Teton County, Idaho, said jury selection is expected to take up to a week, and the trial should last three weeks.
