  • John Lee, 30, is accused of going on a shooting spree Jan. 10 that left three people dead and a fourth seriously injured.
Nearly three months after a triple homicide stunned the city of Moscow, the man charged in the triple slayings returned to the Latah County community March 30. This morning's Lewiston Tribune reports that 30-year-old John Lee arrived at the Latah County jail Monday evening, where he'll await trial for the murders and the attempted murder of four Moscow residents. 

Lee has been in the Whitman County Jail in Washington since early January after being charged with eluding police in a high-speed chase across the Idaho/Washington Border. Washington prosecutors say they have dropped their charges so that Lee could be extradited to Idaho. Latah County prosecutors say Lee shot and killed his adoptive mother 61-year-old Terri Gzebieski, his landlord 76-year-old David Trail, coworker 47-year-old Belinda Nieburh, and the shooting of a fourth person: 39-year-old Michael Chin.

The Tribune reports that the extradition process was completed earlier this month when Whitman County Superior Court Judge David Frazier ordered that Lee be returned to Idaho as soon as the Washington case was resolved.
