    Arrest Made In Alaska Cold Case

    There's been an arrest made in an Alaskan Cold Case.

    45 year old Jane Reth of Illinois has been arrested in the murder of her husband Scott Coville back in 1988.

    There's been new findings in the case. Reth will be extradited to Alaska. They never found this poor man's body. Hmmmmmm.

    Wow! I sure hope there are follow up stories on this case. I wonder what new evidence was uncovered? It must be pretty damning to arrest her. Hopefully this will lead to locating his remains so that he can be properly laid to rest. Prayers to his family.
    ...and be sure your sin will find you out.

    No problem, TM.

    Scott Coville's mother was shocked. She had always been suspicious as this chick never reported him missing or called the family. They had met in college Scott and Jane. Well alot at link. Those poor people all those years just wondering.

    Mother in Alaska cold case murder thankful for resolution

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska - The mother of a man murdered in Sitka almost 23 years ago says she's thankful to the determined cold case detectives who caught her son's killer and for bringing the family closure after two decades of mystery surrounding his disappearance.

    (Snipped)


    Now that Scott's wife, Jane Reth, has confessed to the murder, Reta can stop worrying about what happened to her son.

    "In one aspect, it's less painful to have the knowledge that they didn't cease loving you," she said.

    Reth, 45, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in Sitka Superior Court on Nov. 22. Reth entered the plea by telephone from Lemon Creek Correctional Center, where she's been since troopers extradited her from Oswego, Ill.
