Charges amended for Moscow man accused in fatal shooting

Murder Case 2The first-degree murder charge for a Moscow man who allegedly shot and killed another man in a Moscow trailer park last month has been amended to second-degree.

 

28-year-old Nathaniel Nisbet will still face a maximum penalty of life in prison if found guilty of the charge, but it no longer implies a premeditated motive. Magistrate John Judge approved the amended charge Tuesday morning in Latah County.

 

Nisbet is accused of allegedly shooting 42-year-old Charles McMichael during a confrontation November 10th at the Bel Air Mobile Home Park on North Polk Extension in Moscow.

 

McMichael died at Gritman Medical Center after the incident.

 

A preliminary hearing for Nisbet was scheduled to begin Monday, but was postponed until December 19th.
