12-04-07 Murder Charges Filed - Dailey case
Boise, Dec. 4, 2007 - Murder charges have been filed in connection with the death of a Boise man earlier this year. The suspect in the homicide has been in police custody since shortly after the murder on unrelated charges. He is currently in an Idaho prison on an unrelated probation violation.
Suspect: Todd V. Lubking, 43, formerly of Boise, currently in custody of the Idaho Dept. of Corrections. A booking photo of the suspect is available from the ACSO.
Charge: 1st Degree Murder
Boise Police have secured a warrant for the arrest of Todd Lubking in connection with the murder of Andrew J. Dailey, 68. Dailey was found dead in his trailer home on the 100 blk of Driftwood St. last May 31st. The Ada County Coroner ruled the death a homicide. According to the Coroner, Dailey died as a result of blood loss from multiple injuries including blunt force trauma and stab wounds.
Background: Boise Police Detectives developed leads very early in the investigation that pointed to Lubking as a potential suspect. Shortly after officers discovered the homicide at 9:50 p.m., May 31st, Boise Police issued an alert to area law enforcement to be on the lookout for Lubking. Lubking was located by Nampa Police when they responded to a disturbance outside a Nampa restaurant at 10:15 p.m. May 31st. Lubking was taken to the Canyon County jail on misdemeanor battery and resisting and obstructing charges in connection with the Nampa incident.
Boise Police believe the incident in Nampa involving Lubking occurred shortly after the suspect committed the homicide in Boise.
Boise Police Detectives believe robbery and drugs were involved in the homicide.
The charges against Lubking are the result of a thorough investigation involving cooperation between Boise Police, the Ada County Prosecutor's Office, the Ada County Coroner and Nampa Police. The timing of the warrant (issued Monday 12/3) is also a result of the receipt of evidence tests conducted as part of the investigation.
Lubking remained in the Canyon County jail until mid-August, when he was moved to the Ada County jail on a probation violation charge. Lubking was transferred to the custody of the Idaho Department of Corrections in late August.
The warrant will be served on Lubking in prison. Check with Ada County Courts for an arraignment date.
