A man has been banned from hunting and fishing for 12 years after poaching in Routt County. KRAI’s Vladan Chase has more.

A nine-year-old died on a four-wheeler in Sweetwater County, Wyoming last weekend. It happened near the Killpecker Sand Dunes. The juvenile wasn’t wearing a helmet and was ejected from the vehicle, and died from injuries sustained in the crash.

Kremmling police responded to a stabbing at a residence in the Town of Kremmling last week. The two involved knew each other. Nathan Alan Craw was taken into custody on charges of First Degree Assault. He is still in jail in Grand County on $500,000 bond.

A couple had to be rescued by Routt County Search and Rescue this weekend, after getting lost north of Hayden. They had gone on a hike, but got off the trail to look at some beaver ponds. They couldn’t find the trail after that, so they called 911, because they didn’t want to go in the wrong direction. Search and Rescue searched on ATVs, and found the couple, getting them out safely by around 1 a.m.

Matt Karzen was sworn in Monday, as District Attorney for the 14th Judicial District. Karzen will represent the citizens of Grand, Routt, and Moffat Counties.

The new Chief Deputy District Attorney for Grand County is Kathryn Dowdell.

An elk with a GPS tracking collar walked from Maybell, north of Craig and Hayden, on into Steamboat, and then up and over the Continental Divide in North Park. It was 255 miles, according to Colorado Parks and Wildlife, and then she gave birth to her calf. Parks and Wildlife officials say it was a longer than normal elk migration.
