Colville faces multiple charges, including first-degree premeditated murder, armed trafficking of methamphetamine, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, improper exhibition of a dangerous firearm, and possession of drug paraphernalia, officials said.

“I hope that you live with it every day of your life," Arnold told WEAR of the suspects. "I want to wish bad on them, I do, but I can't because what's that going to solve? Another family hurting like this?"
