Parties in case of man accused of killing family in Kellogg agree to try mediation outside of court

WALLACE, Idaho – The suspect of the shooting in Kellogg on Sunday that left four people dead made his first appearance in court on Tuesday, where he heard the charges he’s now facing.

On June 18, a shooting was reported at a Kellogg residence, where police found four people dead. Officers arrested 31-year-old Majorjon Kaylor, a neighbor of the four victims, holding him on first-degree murder and first-degree burglary charges.

The motive and details of the shooting have not been released at this time, however the Shoshone County judge who oversaw Tuesday’s arraignment named the victims as Kenneth Guardipee, Kenna Guardipee, Devin Smith, and an unnamed minor.

The parties will make an effort and “exercise good faith” during the mediation process. After the mediation, Gaskill will file a report to the Court with their decision.

Before the decision is final, District Judge Barbara Duggan will sign off on this agreement between the parties.
