BROOMFIELD, Colo. (AP) — A 26-year-old Broomfield woman accused of trying to remove blood stains from the carpet after what police say was a deadly argument at her home is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 12.

The Broomfield Enterprise reports Carissa Koch faces charges of tampering with physical evidence and being an accessory to a crime. Her husband, 32-year-old Matthew P. Burnett, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of 34-year-old James Clifford Fernandez.

Police say Fernandez’ body was found on a street Aug. 17 after he got in an argument with Burnett at the couple’s home.

An arrest affidavit says Burnett attacked Fernandez after finding him in a “compromising position” with his wife. Fernandez sustained head trauma during the struggle.
