BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The head of Idaho’s Department of Correction is taking a leave of absence as his grandson faces a murder charge in southern Idaho. Brent Reinke has led the department since 2007. Department spokesman Jeff Ray said in a prepared statement that Reinke is taking two weeks’ leave, effective immediately, to address his grandson’s criminal prosecution. Twenty-three-year-old Bradly Frank James is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the shooting and stabbing death of 58-year-old Larry R. Miller in Filer. Prosecutors say Miller died Dec. 12 after he was shot in the face and stabbed 25 times. A state judge entered a not-guilty plea on James’ behalf. Board of Correction Chairwoman Robin Sandy said the board respects Reinke’s wish to support his family as they deal with a tragic and personal matter.
