Man Accused of Trying to Hire Someone to Kill Child He is Accused of Sexually Abusing

The 60-year-old man accused of soliciting someone to have a 7-year-old child kidnapped and killed pleaded not guilty on Friday and remains in custody.

Byron Ely, of Boise, is being held on a $6 million bond at the Ada County Jail. Ely is accused of sexually abusing the 7-year-old and is charged on suspicion of lewd conduct with a child younger than age 16.

His trial for the child sex crime was set to begin on March 17 in Ada County, and Ely is accused of offering to pay someone to have the child and the child’s parents killed, in an effort to ensure he isn’t convicted.
