Arlington Man Accused Of Killing Sister
ARLINGTON, Wash. (AP) - A 50-year-old Arlington man was arrested Sunday night for investigation of murder in the death of his sister.
The Snohomish County sheriff's office says deputies were called to a residence Sunday by the woman's son. He said his mother had disappeared and he was suspicious because her vehicle was at his uncle's property.
After questioning the suspect, a sergeant searched the property and found the body of the 53-year-old woman covered with a blanket in a field.
