July 8, 2011

IDAHO FALLS — One of two men charged in connection with the shooting death of a Firth man in March pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of aggravated assault.
Jayson B. Burns, 22, was arrested March 22 by the Idaho Falls Police in connection to the shooting of Anthony "A.J." Camp, 24, of Firth. In exchange for his guilty plea, Bonneville County Prosecutors dismissed a second count of aggravated assault and weapons enhancements on both charges, Bonneville County Prosecuting Attorney Bruce Pickett said.
Burns will be sentenced Aug. 11 in district court in Bonneville County. He could be sentenced for up to five years in jail.
On Wednesday, Lindy Lizabeth Williamson, 53, pleaded guilty to felony harboring, reduced from accessory to second-degree murder. She is also scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 11 and could receive one to five years in jail.
Police said Williamson withheld information from police and helped hide 23-year-old Geoffrey Elawadly in March when he was a suspect in the murder investigation. Elawadly has been charged with second-degree murder and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the shooting death of Camp.
Investigators have said Camp was shot after driving away from an argument at a motel parking lot in Idaho Falls March 22.
