Timmy Kinner, the Boise Mass Stabbing Suspect, Pleads Guilty to 2018 Murder of 3-Year-Old Girl
Kinner also plead guilty to eight counts of aggravated battery, two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of use of a deadly weapon.
BOISE, ID - Timmy Kinner, the Boise man who was arrested back in 2018 after he killed a three-year-old girl at her birthday party, has plead guilty to her murder, as well as numerous other charges.
In a news release from the Ada County Prosecutor's Office, Kinner pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree murder, eight counts of aggravated battery, two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of use of a deadly weapon.
Not only did Kinner stab and kill three-year-old Ruya Kadir on June 30, 2018, but also eight other people were wounded in the surprise attack. Five of them were children. Kinner faced the death penalty after his arrest and has faced several court hearings since that fateful day. He was declared mentally fit to stand trial back in October of 2019.
Kinner's next court appearance is now set for June 10 in Ada County.
“She was my world. And if no one stopped me, I could talk forever about my Ruya,” the girl’s mother, Bifituu Kadir, said during a memorial days after the stabbing. “She was a gift from God. … She came to us on her birthday, and she left on her birthday. Her name in Turkish means dream. And she came to us like a dream.”
