SIERRA VISTA, AZ - A 52-year-old Bisbee woman arrested in the death of her husband at their home has been released after prosecutors didn't immediately file a criminal complaint charging her.
Luna had called 911 late the night of Sept. 10 to report that her husband had a cord around his neck and wasn't breathing.
The Sierra Vista Herald reports that Luna was booked into the Cochise County jail on suspicion of second-degree murder but that she was released Friday.
Without discussing specifics of Luna's case, Chief Criminal Deputy County Attorney said prosecutors sometimes additional investigation before a formal charge is filed.
