Michael Watkins faces felony burglary and grand theft charges as well as a misdemeanor charge after he allegedly broke into Zoo Boise and released and killed a Patas monkey in November. Watkins' lawyer has said he was drunk and trying to return the monkey to its enclosure when it attacked him, but a witness says Watkins was trying to steal the monkey. Watkins requested two more weeks to consider what plea he will enter.
