EXCLUSIVE: Wife Of Suspect In Nine Mile Falls Murder Talks To KHQ

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane County Sheriff's Department arrested a man for murder Tuesday morning after finding the body of a woman stuffed into a plastic tub, submerged in some sort of weak acid. The suspect, 27-year-old Jason Hart is now behind bars, but his wife talked exclusively with KHQ Tuesday after finding out that her husband was the suspect in a murder. 

Jessica Hart says her husband has suffered from PTSD after being deployed to Iraq and the man that did this was not the man she married.

 Married for almost six years, Jessica says things got so bad that she eventually had to move out, taking her two children with her.

She said there were times that Jason was a great dad. He would take their kids camping and fishing but when he would do drugs he was mentally unstable and would become a completely different person.

According to Jessica, Jason was on and off the wagon for nearly a year, struggling with his drug use. She said he wouldn't stay out all night with friends, but he would actually bring the drugs home and do them in a bathroom.

Talking to Jason on the phone yesterday, Jessica said he was not in a good place.  
Tuesday morning when Jessica heard from a neighbor that a SWAT team was in her old neighborhood, she had a sinking feeling somehow Jason was involved.  

Jessica hoped Jason would eventually get help for his problems and she never imagined anything like this happening.  

Now she's struggling with how she's going to tell her kids that their dad may be involved in a murder.

Jason Hart is expected to make his first appearance Wednesday morning.
