Everett woman accused of smothering boyfriend



EVERETT — An Everett woman has been accused of smothering her boyfriend to death with her chest in his face.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office says the 50-year-old woman and 51-year-old man had been drinking with friends at a home early Saturday when the two argued in a back room.

KIRO reports witnesses found the woman on top of the man who was unconscious. Medics could not revive him, and he was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The man was 5-foot-7, 175 pounds. The woman is 5-foot-6, 192 pounds. She appeared in Everett District Court on Monday and was released from jail while detectives investigate a possible manslaughter charge.
