Three Boise residents arrested last month on heroin trafficking charges could face life in prison if convicted of the most serious charges against them.

Caven H. King, 30, Audri E. Perkins, 28, and Tyler C. Knarr, 29, were arrested after police seized more than 43 grams of heroin and more than two grams of methamphetamine at a home near the intersection of South Orchard and West Kootenai streets.

On Wednesday, Ada County prosecutors added new charges against all three.

Perkins and Knarr faces the most serious charges: trafficking in more than 28 grams of heroin. If convicted, they would face a minimum sentence of 15 years and up to life.

She is also charged with two counts of trafficking seven to 28 grams of heroin and four counts of trafficking two to seven grams. The counts with the larger amounts each carry a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison, while the lesser ones carry a minimum sentence of three years.

King is charged with conspiracy to traffic in heroin. He also faces two counts of trafficking seven to 28 grams of heroin and four counts of between two and seven grams.

Knarr was initially taken into custody on a fugitive warrant and for felony parole violation. He is now charged with two counts of trafficking, one for the 28 grams or more and one for two to seven grams. He was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

All three defendants are scheduled to appear April 28 for a preliminary hearing in Ada County Magistrate Court.
