Woman charged with murdering wife, bail set at $3 million
REDMOND, Wash. (AP) — A 27-year-old Redmond woman has been charged with second-degree murder in the strangulation death of her wife Tiffany Scotland.
Multiple news outlets report Aterraka Scotland was charged Monday in King County and had bail set at $3 million.
Prosecutors said in court papers that Aterraka Scotland told police she killed her wife in their Redmond apartment March 29 after learning that she was having an affair.
Prosecutors say she strangled her wife to death and had two others help her cover up the crime by stabbing the victim to make it appear that the victim was robbed. Prosecutors say she also told police she and others planned to dispose of the body at a later time and that she assumed the victim’s identity to make it seem as if she was still alive.
It wasn’t clear if Aterraka Scotland has an attorney.
