Idaho Man On Trial for Shooting Romantic Rival

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — A trial is underway for an Idaho man charged with attempted murder because prosecutors say he tried to shoot his romantic rival. The Lewiston Tribune reported the trial of 25-year-old Lapwai resident Michael J. Wilson began Monday in Lewiston’s 2nd District Court.

Nez Perce County Deputy Prosecutor April Smith said during her opening statement Monday that Wilson was jealous of his ex-girlfriend’s fiance and so went to his apartment and tried to shoot him.

But Wilson’s defense attorney Robert Van Idour questioned the credibility of the witnesses who told police what allegedly happened that day, noting that the witnesses had criminal histories. Prosecutors say the man they believe is the victim, 26-year-old Christopher Perini of Lewiston, wasn’t injured in the incident.
