Hamilton Man Denies Murder Charges in Mysterious Death

Posted: Updated:
HAMILTON -

A Hamilton man denies accusations he stomped and beat a friend to death, after the man supposedly smelled his wife's hair.

25-year-old Richard Michael Sullivan pleaded not guilty to deliberate homicide Thursday for the Jan. 28 death of 25-year-old Robert L. Thaut.

Prosecutors say Sullivan and his wife had been drinking at Thaut's house when Sullivan became angry because Thaut smelled Candace Sullivan's hair.
    
An autopsy found Thaut suffered blunt-force trauma to his abdomen up to two hours before the 911 call was made and could have survived with prompt medical attention. He also suffered numerous blows to the head and a broken nose.
    
District Judge James Haynes continued Sullivan's bail at $200,000.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the great parts about living in Spokane, is if you head out of town in any direction, you're going to run into some beautiful farm land. I grew up south of Spokane, near Plaza, and one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch at night and stare south towards Rosalia at all of the rolling hills of wheat, lentils, barley and peas.
