Man to face trial in Elko killing

ELKO " A Winnemucca man has been bound over to face trial for killing another man last spring in Elko County.

Winston Bruce Kelly, 35, is accused of stabbing Peter Carl Braun last April and stealing his pickup and money.

The body of the 58-year-old Braun was found 11 miles northwest of Owyhee, down an embankment.

Braun's family members said Braun was visiting Elko after selling his home near Reno. He planned to move to Twentynine Palms, Calif., but never made it out of Elko County.

Kelly was arrested in April on a DUI shortly after Braun was killed.

Police in Mountain Home, Idaho contacted Elko authorities after they found him sleeping in Braun's pickup truck.
