Deputy Prosecuting Attorney
|RE:||State v. Timmy Kinner Jr – GJ Indictment|
(Boise, ID) – On August 7, 2018, an Ada County Grand Jury returned an Indictment charging Timmy Kinner Jr. with one count of first degree murder for the death of Ruya Kadir. The Grand Jury also indicted Mr. Kinner on eight counts of aggravated battery, one count of burglary, two counts of aggravated assault and a weapon enhancement.
Ada County Prosecuting Attorney Jan M. Bennetts issued the following statement:
Five weeks ago, our community was shaken by the events of June 30, 2018. On behalf of my entire Office, I extend my deepest condolences to Ruya’s family for their unimaginable loss. Our thoughts continue to be with Ruya’s family and all of the victims who are injured and their families.
I want to thank the Boise Police Detectives who have worked tirelessly on this case. Since the events of June 30, 2018, my Office has been working alongside the Boise Police Department. My team has logged countless hours on this case over the last five weeks.
We know the community wants answers and those answers will come through the court proceedings in this case. It is important that we preserve the integrity of the case and let the criminal justice process take its course to ensure Mr. Kinner receives a fair trial.
Mr. Kinner continues to be held without bond and will be scheduled for an arraignment before a district judge.
The charge of first degree murder is eligible for the death penalty. Under Idaho law a notice of intent to seek the death penalty must be filed within 60 days of entry of plea in district court. A decision regarding the death penalty will be forthcoming as soon as all of the statutory factors under Idaho law are fully considered.
My office will continue to focus on the work ahead in our pursuit of justice in this case.
