Murder charges for Colorado inmate tied to missing 4
BOULDER, Colorado – Prosecutors have filed two counts of second-degree murder against a Colorado inmate with links to four missing or dead people.
Scott Lee Kimball was charged Tuesday in Boulder County in the deaths of his 60-year-old uncle, Terry Kimball, and Jennifer Marcum, a federal witness against one of Kimball’s former cell mates.
Kimball already was serving a 48-year prison term for theft, and he was sentenced in June to more than five years in prison on a weapons conviction. He is being held on the new charges in lieu of $2 million bail.
The FBI says Kimball also had ties to 24-year-old Leann Emry, whose body was found in eastern Utah in March, and 19-year-old Kaysi McLeod, whose remains were found in northwest Colorado in September.
