Details of child?s death emerge









On the lIghter sIde

Hibernating pet tarantulas stolen from crawlspace of house: A metro Atlanta man told police a spider thief snuck into a crawlspace under his home and stole five of his 18 pet tarantulas. Austell police say they?ve issued an arrest warrant for a man accused of possessing the arachnids. Dwayne Melton said the spiders live beneath his Austell home in individual containers, where they hibernate during the winter until spring arrives. Melton said he didn?t know his spiders were missing until he got a phone call from Animart Pets in Austell, where employees said someone had just sold five tarantulas to the business. Melton then identified the spiders as his and police began investigating. It wasn?t immediately known when the theft happened, and details about the suspect weren?t available. ?

Crewdson ready to wrestle at state

By RICK CLARK Staff writer In this week?s edition of ?Getting to know an athlete,? we feature Wallace sophomore Stetson Crewdson. He recently punched his ticket to the state wrestling tournament in Pocatello. 1. Of the three sports you play, which one is your favorite and why? ?Wrestling. Mainly because once you step out on the mat, you?re by yourself out there. You don?t have anyone to fall back on if you make a mistake.? 2. Are there any sports (offered or not at Wallace) that you?ve wanted to try? ?Definitely hockey. It?s a contact sport that I think would be fun. I don?t know if I can skate, but I haven?t tried it so who knows if I can play?? 3. What is your favorite sports memory? ?Probably the time that I got the wrestling coaches to play tag with us during practice this last season.? 4. Who are your biggest supporters? ?Mainly my family. My mom and dad (Shannon and Kelly Rihtarshich), my brother ? who is one of the wrestling coaches ? and my sister.? 5. What are your plans after high school? ?I?ll probably go over to Great Falls or OSU and pursue a degree in the field of agriculture or sports medicine.? Wilson on Aug. 22, 2014, in a home she shared with her three children and her boyfriend, Hiram Wilson, at 94 Lochsa Lane near Kingston. Hiram Wilson said in court Tuesday that he and the victim?s mother, Naomi Bywaters, shared custody of the girl. If convicted, Crawford could face the death penalty. During questions asked by the prosecution, Wilson portrayed Crawford as a consistently medicated alcohol user, who did not like Bywaters and had said Ezra was possessed. Wilson testified that Crawford took thyroid and anxiety medication and drank Mike?s Hard Lemonade on the day the child died. He also said she had a history of writing cryptic messages on the bathroom mirror, and on the night of Ezra?s death a message appeared there with the words, ?Scumbag, murder, and daughter.?

4293982-0225 Prosecutor Blaine Harrocks on Tuesday, Wilson testified that Crawford awoke him on the night of the child?s death and told him, panicked, that somebody had broken into the home and she could not find Ezra. He said outside doors were open to the house. After searching the home, he reportedly found Ezra in her bed, but not the playpen where she was placed to sleep. see HEARING, A6

Kellogg boys eye state berth

By RICK CLARK Staff writer COEUR d?ALENE ? The Kellogg Wildcat boys basketball team started off slow in the first half, but bounced back in the third quarter to break the game wide open en route to a 73-41 victory over the Priest River Spartans in the first round of the 3A District I-II tournament on Monday night. Tucker Gust of Kellogg led all scorers with 19 points, while also contributing five rebounds and five steals. Season team scoring leader Gus Colburn also chipped in 12 points, six steals, five assists, and four rebounds for the Wildcats. ?We played OK through most of the game but our third quarter was outstanding,? said Kellogg coach Jeff Lambert. ?We played like I?ve seen the team do before and we just jumped on them. It wasn?t close from there on out.? In the third quarter alone, Kellogg was able to score 31 points ? but that wasn?t what necessary powered the team to the win. The defense, pressing the Spartans all night, forced 23 turnovers. Lambert said his team had to make an adjustment toward the start of the game, which proved to be too much for Priest River to handle. see KELLOGG, A6 ?Tuna Does Vegas?
