A probation violation report has been filed against Myles Kensey Stout, who is on 12 years probation in connection with the slaying of another youth at a Mountain Shadows home on March 9, 2011.

Stout, 23, was booked into the Hamilton County Jail on Tuesday morning.

Stout had been sentenced to six years for the killing. Judge Barry Steelman said two years would be served in state prison and four years suspended. The judge said if Stout got into any more trouble he would have to then serve the four years.   

Stout was ordered by Judge Steelman to pay $21,998 to the Compton family to cover funeral and burial expenses. 

Stout went into prison on Nov. 16, 2012, and was out by the end of February, 2013.

The report said Stout has been reporting to his probation officer and has had no positive drug screens. It says it was determined that he does not need alcohol or drug treatment.

It says he owes $165 in supervision fees as well as $945.50 in court costs.

The report says Stout is suppose to pay $150 per month to the Compton family, but has paid $50, $50, $50, $25, $40 and $90.

It says, "Mr. Stout has failed to make a restitution payment since 10/29/2013 and has stated (to the probation officer) on several occasions that he does not feel that he should have to pay any restitution at all to the victim's family.

"As of the date of this report he has paid a total of $305 and has a remaining balance of $21,693."
