No death penalty in attorney's shooting death


BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ A 42-year-old southwest Idaho man charged
with shooting his wife's boss has pleaded not guilty to
first-degree murder and prosecutors say they won't seek the death
Robert Dean Hall of Meridian entered his plea Wednesday in the
March 11 shooting death of attorney Emmett Corrigan.
Prosecutors say Corrigan and Hall's wife, Kandi, met with an
attorney hours before the shooting so she could get information
about filing for divorce and getting an order of protection. Police
say Hall confronted his wife and Corrigan at a Meridian Walgreens.
Corrigan was shot in the head and chest.
On Wednesday, Kandi Hall asked the court to allow her to have
contact with her husband. The judge denied that request because
investigators say she is an eyewitness to the shooting.
