Coos Bay woman arrested for murder 7 months after husband stabbed

COOS BAY — The wife of a 43-year-old man fatally stabbed over seven months ago has been indicted on a murder charge.

The Register-Guard reports Priscilla Lynn Koester was arrested Tuesday with an arraignment set for Wednesday in the death of Christopher Koester.

Koester's body was found in his Coos Bay home in March. Officials say he died from internal bleeding caused by a stab wound to the abdomen.

A Coos County grand jury returned the indictment last week after an investigation involving evidence testing at state forensic laboratories.
