Boundary County man charged with shooting his wife and setting a house on fire in 2020

Aug. 4 – A 57-year-old Boundary County man was charged earlier this month with the shooting death of his wife and subsequent house fire after a two-year investigation, the sheriff’s office said Friday.

Shannon P. Dabbs, 57, was charged with first-degree manslaughter and arson in early July.

Dabbs is charged with shooting his wife, Susan Marie Dabbs, on September 22, 2020.

According to court documents, Dabbs is accused of shooting his wife multiple times in the head and chest before setting fire to the cabin with a Moyie Springs address where the shooting took place, 6998 Perkins Lake Road, about a mile west of the border with Montana.

Dabbs was in Boundary County Jail Friday on $1 million bail.

A warrant for Dabbs’ arrest was issued on July 7 and he made his first appearance on August 1.

Investigators from the Idaho State Police and Boundary County Sheriff’s Office, along with the Idaho State Fire Marshall and Spokane division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms worked on the case for nearly three years to arrive at Dabbs’ arrest, according to a press release from the sheriff’s office.

Details of the allegations against Dabbs were not available Friday because a prosecutor prepared the evidence to hold Dabbs verbally before a judge instead of submitting the typical written document.

A recording of the hearing was not immediately available.
