Man pleads to amended charges in meth death

COEUR D'ALENE - A Washington man pleaded guilty to recklessly endangering the life of an Idaho man by making him eat the methamphetamine that caused his death.

The Coeur d'Alene Press reports Shaun Patrick Kelly faced a murder charge until a Wednesday hearing where he instead pleaded guilty to four amended charges.

If run consecutively, the sentences for the charges could result in a life sentence plus an additional 30 years.

According to a court records, Kelly is accused of forcing Evan Larkin to ingest a lethal dose of methamphetamine almost two years ago, because he thought Larkin was a police agent.

After previously pleading not guilty and being released from jail on bond, Kelly accrued additional offenses, including six counts of burglary, eluding police and intimidating a witness in separate cases.
