Man Convicted in 1984 Killing of Blackfoot Woman, Faces Death
(BOISE, ID) – Richard Albert Leavitt – the man convicted of brutally killing a Blackfoot woman in 1984, is set to be executed next month. Thirty-one-year-old Danette Elg called police to report that Leavitt was prowling around her home the night she was murdered. The U.S. Supreme Court declined Leavitt’s appeal Monday. Barring any last-minute court intervention, Leavitt will be put to death June 12.
