Kevin Harper in court for new charges

YAKIMA, Wash.-- A former murder suspect was back in court today. This time for a case that has nothing to do with the West Valley triple murder. Kevin Harper is accused of being a fugitive from Idaho. Authorities there said he violated his probation.

An arrest warrant was issued in March of 2011, a month after the Goggin family was killed. These new charges don't interfere with Yakima County prosecutors attempt to refile murder charges against him for the West Valley killings.
