A Minnesota woman has been arrested and charged with the death of her ex-husband, whose body was found buried in the backyard of their home.
Karina See Her, 40, was arrested Saturday in St. Paul, Minnesota, after the body of her ex-husband, Kou Yang, 50, was discovered buried underneath a newly built shed.
The discovery came more than a week after police visited Yang and Her’s shared home for a wellness check. An anonymous 911 caller requested for the check on Yang on July 22, after not seeing him for weeks.
According to True Crime Daily, Her told officers that yang left the house on June 30th and had not been seen since. She reportedly attempted to call him many times but he never answered. Her allegedly reported him missing.
That same day of the welfare check, Her’s 17-year-old daughter had called police to report that she hadn’t seen her stepfather in several weeks and that she believed her mother had killed him. Neighbors had also reported a foul stench coming from their backyard.
According to CBS Minnesota, investigators executed a search warrant inside the house. They found blood on the walls, which had been painted over. Yang’s blood was also discovered on a window, inside a carpet machine, and in the laundry room.
Police arrested Her on Saturday, according to Ramsey County Sheriff. Her is charged with second-degree murder and her bail has been set at $2 million. If convicted, she could face up to 40 years in prison.
