WA - Sara Barrett, 42, murdered, husband charged, Tacoma, 13 March 2013
Tony Barrett Allegedly Kills Wife, Asks News Station To Post Message On Facebook (Huffington Post/AP)
SEATTLE -- A man who told a TV newsroom that he had killed his wife and asked the station to post that message on Facebook was arrested Thursday after a high-speed chase, authorities said.
Sara Barrett, 42, was found dead from "homicidal violence" about 6 a.m. Thursday at a Tacoma motel, Pierce County sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said.
The discovery came just hours after Tony Barrett, 41, of Puyallup was arrested in the chase that reached 100 mph from Tacoma to Gig Harbor, where police and state troopers stopped his car with spike strips.
On Wednesday night, the caller told KOMO, "I just killed my wife ... I want you to put it on your Facebook," the station reported.
Barrett had called the station because he didn't have a Facebook page and wanted the station to post the message, Troyer said. The caller did not say where the woman could be found.

Tony Barrett served one day in jail and two years of supervision from 2008 to February 2010, according to state Department of Corrections spokeswoman Judi Feliciano. A judge ordered him not to have any “hostile contact” with Sara Barrett for five years. The order expired Feb. 25.

Her is a picture of the murdering 'husband' as he probably usually appeared.
It seems to be the same event that her son posted in his FB. She is wearing the same shirt,too.
Rest in Peace Dear Sara

He should have been in prison for the previous murder attempts and threats. Since they have children I won't say what I really think about him.
