A University of Idaho College of Law Professor expressed skepticism about the involuntary manslaughter case arraigned Thursday in Bonneville County relation to the death of a sheriff’s deputy.

Assistant Professor Samuel Newton said he had never seen a case like the one filed against Jenna Holm. The probable cause affidavit written by Idaho State Police Detective Mike Cox states she is legally responsible for the May 18 death of Deputy Wyatt Maser who was killed when he was hit by a vehicle driven by a fellow deputy. The affidavit states Maser was distracted after Holm threatened him with a machete and was not paying attention when he was hit by a colleague’s car arriving on the scene.
