Adam Fravel, the former boyfriend of Maddie Kingsbury, has now been charged with first degree murder and first degree murder while committing domestic abuse of Kingsbury. We covered this story shortly after Maddie went missing in March and as a community rose up to help a family find their young mother whose life was ended tragically.
As you may recall, it took two months for searchers to find Maddie's body. Immediately after finding her, Fravel was arrested and initially charged with two counts of murder in the second degree. However, a grand jury returned an indictment yesterday of two additional murder charges in the first degree after listening to 31 witnesses.
Here's the indictment:
At today's court hearing, unconditional bail terms were lifted from $2 Million to $3 Million and conditional bail terms were lifted from $1 Million to $2 Million. Fravel has been in custody since his June arrest, unable to post the previous bail amount. Trial in this case won't likely happen until next spring at the earliest. An omnibus hearing is tentatively scheduled for December 14th, 2023.
Let's get justice for Maddie and her family!
