Court hearing set involving pregnant wife killing

Priest River man appeals sentence in stabbing

A preliminary hearing has been rescheduled for a northern Idaho man who police say stabbed to death his pregnant wife at their Priest River home.

The Bonner County Daily Bee reports the hearing for 27-year-old Jeremy Keith Swanson has been moved from Wednesday to Jan. 23. He faces two counts of first-degree murder.

Court records say Swanson told authorities he knew 27-year-old Jennifer Marie Bosch-Swanson was 15 weeks pregnant when he stabbed her to death on Dec. 18. Police say the couple’s 20-month-old daughter was also in the home at the time but she was not harmed.

Police say Jeremy Swanson before the killing did an Internet search involving torturing a person by inflicting ice pick wounds.

He is being held without bail at the Bonner County Jail.
