MARYSVILLE — Sheriff’s detectives are investigating whether a Marysville woman hit and killed her husband with her car Friday night.
The suspect, 63, was booked into the Snohomish County Jail for second-degree murder.
A witness reported the husband and wife were arguing in the driveway. The woman drove away in a Hyundai Accent, leaving the man on the ground, unresponsive, the witness reported.
Aid crews arrived around 6 p.m. on Friday to her home in the 1500 block of 140th Street SE, west of Marysville. They found a man, 64, with serious injuries to his head and body that were consistent with being struck by a vehicle, sheriff’s spokesperson Courtney O’Keefe said. The aid crews attempted lifesaving efforts. The man died at the scene.
Detectives later found the vehicle at the residence of a family member just a block away. The Hyundai was hidden in some wooded brush nearby, with damage to its front end that detectives noted was consistent with hitting a person, O’Keefe said.
The suspect reportedly acknowledged that she had been arguing with her husband and that she drove away in the Hyundai. But she denied hitting him, O’Keefe said. The woman allegedly acknowledged “running over something.”
She was arrested without further incident. Detectives remained at the scene overnight. The investigation remains active, O’Keefe said.
