Dora Alvarez Maldonado, 44, was charged with murder after she admitted to drowning her husband.
On August 16th, around 3:00 p.m., police responded to reports of seeing a woman holding a man down in a creek. Officers arrived at the 1700 block of Spencer Road and the male was pronounced dead at the scene.
Maldonado initially told deputies that it was an “unknown male” who was involved in her husband’s drowning.
She later told detectives that the unknown male did not exist and that she killed her husband.
Maldonado was arrested and her bond was set to $500,000.
