    Death Penalty Trial Set for Brian Leigh Dripps in 1996 ID Slaying of Angie Dodge

    Prosecutor's office files notice to seek death penalty against Dripps


    The Bonneville County Prosecutors Office has filed a notice to seek the death penalty in the case against Brian Leigh Dripps.

    Dripps, 54, has been charged with 1st-degree murder and rape for the 1996 killing of Angie Dodge. He was arrested in May after the Idaho Falls Police Department determined his DNA matched multiple samples left at Dodges home where she was killed.

    Dripps admitted to committing both the rape and the murder alone when interrogated by police. He claimed he only intended to rape Dodge and that he thought she was alive when he left her residence.

    The notice cites Idaho Code 19-2515(9), which lists out the requirements for prosecutors to seek the death penalty.

    (e) The murder was especially heinous, atrocious or cruel, manifesting exceptional depravity.

    (f) By the murder, or circumstances surrounding its commission, the defendant exhibited utter disregard for human life.

    (g) The murder was committed in the perpetration of, or attempt to perpetrate, arson, rape, robbery, burglary, kidnapping or mayhem and the defendant killed, intended a killing, or acted with reckless indifference to human life.

    Dripps said he was aware another man was in prison for the crime. Christopher Tapp was convicted for the murder and spent 19 years in prison before he was released in 2017 after Judges for Justice and Bonneville County

    Public Defender John Thomas challenged the validity of his confession. Tapp was exonerated in July after Dripps arrest.

    Bonneville County Prosecutor Daniel Clark said the notice was filed to preserve the States right to recommend the death penalty at sentencing. A jury would make the final decision on whether the penalty should be imposed.

    Given the facts, it seems appropriate upon a conviction in this case for the death penalty to be something for the jury to consider at the end of a trial, Clark said.

    In 2018, Clark filed an intent to seek the death penalty against Jameion Hernandez. At the time Clark said the notice was filed to preserve the States right to pursue the death penalty. Clark ended up not requesting the death penalty in that case.

    In 1998, then Bonneville County Prosecutor Kipp Manwaring sought the death penalty against Tapp. District Judge Ted Wood decided against a death penalty at sentencing.

    Dripps trial moved to 2021

    Victim's mother frustrated by delays

    By Johnathan Hogan
    Post Register

    A trial date for the case against Brian Leigh Dripps has been set for June 8, 2021.

    Defense Attorney James Archibald said he would need a year to prepare for a trial in Dripps case given the seriousness of it.

    Dripps is charged with first-degree murder and rape, both punishable with up to life in prison, for the 1996 killing of Angie Dodge. Last week the Bonneville County Prosecutors Office filed a notice of intent to seek the death penalty against Dripps.

    Archibald filed a request for a second chair to help him represent Dripps, specifically requesting Elisa Massoth from Payette. He also asked for more funding from the county for the case.

    Archibald said he also plans to file a motion for a change of venue to Ada County.

    District Judge Joel Tingey said he would assign another judge to rule on whether to grant Archibald the extra funding. Tingey expressed concerns about Massoth being added to the case but did not say why.

    Only two local attorneys are qualified to be second chair on a death penalty case. One of them, John Thomas, cannot represent Dripps because he represented Christopher Tapp, who had been previously convicted of Angie Dodges murder before being exonerated in July.

    The other local qualified attorney, Manuel Murdoch, is a candidate to be a magistrate judge in Madison County. If made a judge, Murdoch would have to quit the case, requiring the defense to find another second chair and update them on the case.

    Carol Dodge, Angies mother, expressed frustration that the trial date had been pushed so far back. She was ambivalent about the death penalty in Dripps case, citing the cost to Bonneville County and the long wait for execution. Death sentences can take decades to be carried out while the court considers appeals.

    Carol pointed out she had wanted the death penalty against Tapp when he was convicted in 1998. Tapp was exonerated after Carol advocated for his innocence.

    Carol added, however, that Dripps basically gave her daughter the death penalty when he reportedly raped and killed Angie Dodge.

    All I want to know is what the hell happened, Carol said. Why did you kill my daughter?

    Carol was also concerned that Archibald wanted to move the case to Boise, saying she was concerned she would not be able to make frequent trips for the case.

    Archibald said he plans to file a motion for the court to throw out Dripps confession to Idaho Falls Police Department detectives. Dripps admitted to killing Angie Dodge when he was arrested in May. Archibald has argued the detectives did not properly inform Dripps of his Miranda rights before interrogating him, citing a recording that showed one of the detectives told Dripps the Miranda form he signed was a formality.
