Easley had been accused of assault

BAKER CITY — The 14-year-old Baker County boy charged with fatally shooting his foster father and another man at a hunting cabin near Granite Oct. 3 had been involved with juvenile authorities in Lane and Douglas counties before moving to Baker County.

Dillan Dakota Willford Easley had no juvenile court convictions, however, according to information released by Aric Fromdahl, Douglas County Juvenile Department director.

Allegations of second-degree assault, physical harassment and separate allegations of criminal mischief had been made against Easley in 2012. In each case, the state declined to prosecute.

Easley, who accidentally shot himself in the leg the same night he is accused of killing his foster father, Michael Piete, 43, and Piete’s uncle, Kenneth C. Gilliland, 64, was taken to St. Alphonsus Medical Center in Boise for treatment and later released.

He is being held at the 32-bed juvenile portion of the Northern Oregon Regional Corrections Facility at The Dalles. Easley’s next court appearance is scheduled at 2 p.m. Oct. 31, in Grant County Circuit Court at Canyon City.

Grant County District Attorney Ryan Joslin has charged Easley with two counts of aggravated murder in the shooting deaths of Piete and Gilliland. The two men, along with Easley, lived on Dry Creek Road off Highway 30.
