WA - McKaylee Higgs, 27, pregnant, fatally shot in her Yakima home, 8 March 2013
A man wanted for killing his pregnant wife in Washington State was captured in Cordova Wednesday.
Cory Lindblom was arrested and charged with Manslaughter in the 1st Degree. Investigators say Lindblom shot and killed his wife McKaylee Higgs in Yakima, Washington on March 13, 2013. She was eight weeks pregnant at the time.
After five days in critical condition, 27-year-old McKaylee Higgs died along with her unborn baby...
Lindblom told investigators he started shooting when he woke up and saw someone in their bedroom. Deputies indicate the husband never asked who was there or said anything before firing his gun...
Investigators tell KIMA anywhere from two to nine shots were fired. Yakima County's coroner says Higgs was hit once in the back of her neck. The bullet ricocheted into her shoulder, damaged her spinal cord and caused her brain to swell.

June 19, 2015
YAKIMA — Prosecutors plan to retry a former Terrace Heights man for the shooting death of his wife after a jury failed to reach a verdict in his trial Thursday.
Yakima County Superior Court Judge Michael McCarthy declared a mistrial Thursday afternoon after jurors announced they were hopelessly deadlocked after eight hours of deliberation that began Wednesday.
