Daniel Howard

Ex-Idaho trooper Daniel Howard was accused of killing his wife. He was charged with first-degree murder and domestic battery. On Feb. 2, 2021, Howard called 911 to report that Kendy Howard, 52, had shot herself. However, an investigation led authorities to believe the fatal gunshot wound was not self-inflicted. Daniel Howard surrendered to authorities in April 2023. In 2014, Howard was suspended and resigned from the Idaho State Police after he was charged with grand theft. The charges included accusations that he harassed and threatened to kill his wife's alleged lover and that he stole ammunition from the Idaho State Police. In 2015, he was given a suspended sentence of three years in prison and put on probation after being ordered to serve 120 days in jail and perform 600 hours of community service.
