Woman faces witness intimidation charge in case of boy killed at daycare
BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- A woman who police say tried to harass a witness who testified against her mother in a murder trial faces a felony witness intimidation charge.
The Idaho Statesman reports that 39-year-old Stacie Lynn Duval was arrested Friday but left jail on a $50,000 bond. She's scheduled to appear in 4th District Court on Thursday.
Duval is the daughter of Katherine Lea Stanfield, who was convicted in June of first-degree murder for killing a 2-year-old boy in the daycare she operated. The boy was the son of Duval's boyfriend at the time.
Police say Duval tried to harass an 80-year-old witness who testified for the prosecution at Stanfield's trial.
Stanfield was sentenced to life in prison, and must serve at least 10 years before the possibility of parole.
