Centralia Woman has Bond Set at $250,000 in Regard to Help in May Shooting

Bond is set at $250,000, in regard to a Centralia woman who was charged with threatening a witness back in May, after the shooting death of 13-year-old Jaden Krauss occurred at her residence.  36-year-old Nicole Kirgan was formally charged on Monday with 2 Class 2 felonies for harassment or intimidation to a witness.  Kirgan was free on $5,000 bond on her obstruction of justice charge, stemming from the shooting case, with also her facing 2 burglary cases too, as she began to threaten her boyfriend, who was at the home the night that Krauss was shot.  The boyfriend went to police, where they placed an eavesdrop warrant on Kirgan, and wired him with a mic.  Kirgan then on the recording told him that he should lie to police and say that a head injury had affected his memory of what happened the night that Krauss was shot.  If he didn’t lie, she also said that she would tell police of his involvement of a retail theft that happened in Clinton County, with Kirgan saying that she had witnesses lined up to say that he was the one who destroyed evidence in the shooting case.  Also her charge says that she lied to police by saying that her doorbell surveillance video did not properly record on her phone.  The video showed Krauss being placed on her porch, by the 15-year-old juvenile who has already plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter.
