Bond set at $5 million for man charged with Idaho killing

Associated Press

CALDWELL, Idaho – A man who authorities say spent three months on the run after a fatal stabbing in southwest Idaho is being held on $5 million bond.

A 3rd District Court judge set the bond on Monday and also gave the OK for 32-year-old James Mancuso to have a public defender.

Mancuso is accused of stabbing and killing Robert Stevens at a Nampa residence in March. He is charged with second-degree murder.

He was arrested in June in Spokane and returned to Idaho.

Twenty-seven-year-old Ashley Ford, who police say was wanted as an accessory to the murder for harboring Mancuso, has been in custody since early May.
