Bond increased for man charged in lethal meth case

Associated Press

A judge has increased the bond for a Spokane man charged with forcing the grandson of a former Post Falls mayor to ingest a lethal dose of methamphetamine.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reported that Shaun Patrick Kelly’s bond was set at $1 million last week after he was accused of stealing a van and eluding police while out on bail on a second-degree murder charge.

Prosecutors say he pointed a gun at Evan Larkin in 2015 and made him eat a fatal dose of meth to prove he wasn’t a police informant.

He pleaded not guilty.

Kelly was in court Thursday after he was arrested for stealing a U-Haul truck in Spokane Valley and eluding police in Idaho. He was charged with grand theft and eluding.

Gardner filed a motion to increase the bond amount from $25,000. Kelly’s lawyer didn’t object.
