BOISE -- Deliberate, with premeditation and malice. That's how a criminal court judge Monday described the murder charges filed against a former employee of the Ada County Sheriff's Office.

Rob Hall is accused of shooting an attorney at a Walgreens parking lot in Meridian Friday night.

We learned today that Rob Hall's wife, Kandi Hall, was at the Walgreens with the victim when the shooting occurred.

And according to the state, Hall, his wife and the victim, Emmett Corrigan, all had a confrontation before the shots were fired.

The prosecution says on Friday night that Emmett Corrigan and Kandi Hall met at the Walgreens at the corner of Linder and McMillan roads and left in Corrigan's truck.

They say when Rob Hall learned that his wife had left the store with another man, he took his gun to the store parking lot and called his wife.

At some point, Corrigan and Kandi Hall returned to the Walgreens parking lot, where the prosecution says Rob Hall was waiting for them.

Here is what an Ada County deputy prosecutor said happened next:

All parties, all three people, exited their vehicles. There was some manner of confrontation, a verbal confrontation between the defendant and Mr. Corrigan at the time. Shortly after that confrontation, three shots were fired. Two of those shots struck Mr. Corrigan. Those shots killed him.

The prosecution says the third shot was Hall trying to shoot himself in the head, but that wound was not life-threatening.

Hall was taken to the hospital Friday night and later arrested for first-degree murder.

In court Monday, the judge ordered no bond for Hall, so he will remain in jail.

His next court appearance is scheduled for March 28.

If Hall is found guilty of the charges, he could face life in prison or the death penalty.
