Note: The article doesn't seem to explain what he lied about....

Arnold kidnapping suspect lied about travel plan

GRAND JUNCTION, CO - Michael Keith Spell, the man arrested in North Dakota in connection with the disappearance of Sidney, Montana, teacher Sherry Arnold, had received court permission to leave Colorado just two days earlier to go to Texas for a family emergency.

Spell, 22, is scheduled to be arraigned in Garfield County, CO, next week on charges related to a 2009 incident in which he allegedly tried to get a Battlement Mesa middle-school student to find fellow middle-school buyers for marijuana.

That case languished partly because of two psychological competency evaluations, and now it will take a back seat to Spell's prosecution in the Montana case.
 ::snipping2::

Nevermind. I think I figured it out what the article was trying to explain. The article is not very explanatory. It looks as though he received permission from Colorado (due to his 2009 charges in CO) to go to Texas because he claimed his brother in Texas was in a car accident. So CO courts granted him an emergency leave to go to TEXAS, but he went to Montana.

With Spell free on $500 bond in the Garfield County case, he successfully requested permission from a judge Jan. 5 to go to Texas after saying a brother was in a car accident there, court records show. Prosecutors in Garfield County didn't object.

Waters, 47, has a criminal record in Florida, where he had worked in construction.

Spell was arrested in 2007 in Garfield County and faced felony charges of drug distribution and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and a misdemeanor charge of no-consent sexual contact. But after Spell was found to be under the age of 18, the charges were dismissed and the case closed, and a new case was reopened in juvenile court on one charge of drug possession with intent to distribute, said Jim Bradford, clerk of court in Garfield County. That charge also ultimately was dismissed.

Criminal records variously list Spell as having been born in 1987 and 1989.

Spell was arrested in 2009 after allegedly asking a student at what was then St. John Middle School (now an elementary school) in Battlement Mesa to text fellow students and ask them if they wanted to buy marijuana. An arrest affidavit also said the student, then 14, said Spell had provided him with marijuana, and the two had smoked it.

Spell faces charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, attempted distribution of marijuana and solicitation to commit distribution of marijuana.

Spell was being represented by a public defender, who twice successfully requested psychological evaluations for him. The results are under court seal.

Spell initially was free on a personal-recognizance bond co-signed by his father, with whom he was living. In 2010, Spell was arrested on a failureto- appear warrant in the 2009 case. The bond carried a $5,000 penalty in case of default, and the father was issued a notice of forfeiture. http://www.ktvq.com/news/kidnapping-suspect-lied-about-travel-plan/

this may turn out to be a mess

In the court
Many variables remain in Arnold case involving two suspects

 By Louisa Barber
Sidney Herald
 Published on Saturday, January 21, 2012 7:02 PM MST
 ::snipping2::

Currently, Montana has sole jurisdiction over the aggravated kidnapping charges, since Montana is where the case began. If the investigation results in other crimes committed then the location those crimes were committed would establish who has jurisdiction over those.
 ::snipping2::

As of Thursday, police had not recovered Arnold’s body but had reason to believe it’s in North Dakota. If that’s the case, then depending on the evidence the prosecutors have, the state of North Dakota could have jurisdiction over whatever crimes were committed in their jurisdiction.

And in a twist, if crimes were committed while crossing a state line the federal government may also have jurisdiction.

It is possible that Montana and North Dakota could pursue trials on the charges committed in their jurisdictions and the federal government could step in and pursue charges also. When it comes to the double jeopardy clause and the states, that is another story.

It is also possible federal attorneys request that the states drop their charges and only they take over court proceedings.

What is the connection between these two and the victim?  Unfortunate circumstance?

Authorities again ask landowners to search for body
Posted: Thursday, January 26, 2012 7:08 am |

 ::snipping2::
The FBI is asking property owners to check for disturbed soil and matted grass on vacant farmsteads or along shelter belts, which are lines of trees that protect farmland from wind.

The agency says Arnold's body may be buried in a shelter belt with mature or rotted trees.

Two men charged in Montana with aggravated kidnapping in the case are being held in Williston, N.D. Extradition hearings are scheduled next month.

Property owners who discover something unusual are asked to call (701) 774-9191.

Filing says MT kidnap victim choked, buried

Quote
An affidavit filed Friday by Richland County prosecutor Mike Weber is based largely on the alleged confession of Michael Spell, a suspect in the case who told FBI investigators that he felt guilty when he saw "missing" posters for 43-year-old Sherry Arnold after helping bury her body on a farmstead outside of Williston, N.D., about 45 miles from where she was abducted.

Authorities arrested Spell and Waters a week after the crime based on a tip that led them to Spell's girlfriend, who said he had confided in her about the kidnapping, according to the affidavit.

The FBI has been heavily involved in the investigation but no federal charges have been filed. For that to happen, authorities would have to prove Spell and Waters crossed state lines during the alleged crime — a difficult task given that Arnold's body has not been found.

The first details are being released regarding the abduction of missing and now murdered Montana school teacher Sherry Arnold. According to Richland County prosecutor Mike Weber, Arnold’s abduction was a random act of violence by two drugged up suspects who choked her to death and then buried the 43 year old on a farmstead outside of Williston, North Dakota. Sherry Arnold went missing on January 7, 2012 when she went for a jog.

Prosecutors are disclosing the first details of what they believe happened to a Montana School teacher who was allegedly choked to death and buried, reporting she was the victim of a crack-fueled and seemingly random abduction.

Crack Fueled Kidnap, Murder of Montana Teacher, Officials Say
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2012/02/crack-fueled-kidnap-murder-of-montana-teacher-officials-say/
 ::snipping2::
A crack-cocaine induced high led two men to kidnap and choke Montana school teacher Sherry Arnold to death, according to prosecutors.

In an affidavit filed Friday, Richland County prosecutors allege Lester Waters, 44, was high on crack while driving with Michael Spell, 22, from Colorado to find work in the oil fields of nearby South Dakota. That’s when Waters began talking about kidnapping and killing a woman.

According to the affidavit,  posted by Billings television station KTVQ, Spell told police Waters “was capable of doing anything” while on crack and that it “brought the ‘Devil’ out in him.”

Once the two saw Arnold on the morning of Jan. 7, Spell told police, Waters told him to grab her and pull her into their car, according to the affidavit.

Waters then allegedly strangled her in the back seat and together they buried her body in an old farmstead in South Dakota using a shovel Waters had purchased at Walmart, the affidavit said. Arnold’s body has not yet been found.

Spell told police Waters threatened to kill him and his family if he ever revealed what had happened, the affidavit said. Spell allegedly did tell his girlfriend, Angel Cruz, though, and she led investigators to the suspects.

Mont. Teacher's Body Likely Found in North Dakota

Authorities say they believe a body found outside of Williston, N.D., is that of a missing Sidney, Mont., school teacher.

Montana authorities released a statement Wednesday saying they're trying to confirm that the remains are those of 43-year-old Sherry Arnold, who disappeared Jan. 7 during a morning run.

Two Colorado men have been arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping in the case and face a possible death penalty if convicted.

Mont. teacher's body likely found in North Dakota

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — Authorities said Wednesday they believe a body found outside Williston, N.D., is that of a missing Sidney, Mont., school teacher who disappeared Jan. 7 during a morning run.

Montana authorities released a statement saying they're trying to confirm that the remains are those of Sherry Arnold, 43.

An FBI team started to recover the body on Tuesday near Williston, which is in western North Dakota and about 50 miles from Sidney, where Arnold taught high school math.

Two Colorado men have been arrested and charged with aggravated kidnapping in the case and face a possible death penalty if convicted.

Michael Keith Spell, 22, and Lester Van Waters Jr., 47, pleaded not guilty last month to one count each of aggravated kidnapping during an arraignment in state district court in Arnold's hometown of Sidney.

Court documents filed by the prosecutor in the case indicate Spell, of Parachute, Colo., has confessed to his role in the crack-fueled abduction and presumed killing of Arnold.
