LIBBY, Mont. — Law enforcement officials say an Idaho couple has been arrested in connection to a suspicious death in extreme northwestern Montana.
Lincoln County Sheriff’s office announced Friday that 28-yearold Ezra Skinner and 27-year-old Sarah Carpenter Skinner are being held without bail and are facing homicide charges.
According to authorities, 31-year-old Travis Gillett was shot and killed sometime in mid-January. Gillett — a former resident of Libby and Troy — was reported missing after leaving Sandpoint, Idaho with another person in a dark blue or green pickup to make a delivery somewhere in the Yaak Valley.
The caller reported that Gillett said he would be back soon, but had not returned.
