Rancher’s death weighs on deputy

One of the sheriff’s deputies involved in the shooting death of an Adams County rancher on Nov. 1 told his father that he believes his actions that night were justified — and that “God never intended for man to kill another man.” “This weighs upon him, even believing he did the right thing,” Eagle resident Steve Wood said of his son, Brian. “This weighs upon him.

Roland, 38, were the two deputies involved in the death that night of Jack Yantis, 62, a lifelong resident of the Council area/Katy Moeller, Idaho Statesman. More here.
