A West Boise woman arrested and charged with second-degree murder was identified as Josina Regan, 45. According to the police, Regan is no stranger to the criminal courts, and she was already facing charges for felony burglary and arrest.
On Thursday, October 22 at about 4 am, the cops were called to the scene of what is presumably Regan’s home. Originally, a call came into the police in Boise for what was reported as a medical emergency. When the cops arrived at the defendant’s home on North Ancestor Avenue, they found a man who had been shot to death inside.
At first, Regan told the police that she found the man already shot when she got home. Then she changed her story and confessed that she had shot the man three times in the chest. No motive was given for why she shot the man. The man’s name has not yet been released.
The woman was promptly arrested and taken to the West Boise jail. She has been charged with second-degree murder. The police confirmed that was already facing unrelated charges for felony theft and burglary. After closer inspection, the authorities confirmed that Josina Regan also had 22 arrests for failure to appear in court.
The prosecutor, Joshua Haws, asked the courts to make Regan’s bond as high as possible. She is a flight risk and has proven that she does not appear in court when she is supposed to. She also lied to the police and gave different stories as to what really happened Thursday night.
The police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a motive here. Regan was held on $1 million bond and will attend her next hearing on November 2.
