A Redmond woman accused of killing her wife pleaded not guilty in King County Superior Court April 17.

Police arrested Aterraka Scotland, 27, at a bus stop after they connected her to the murder of Tiffany Scotland, 26. The couple’s roommate had found Tiffany Scotland deceased in their bedroom on April 3. The King County Medical Examiner’s Office estimates she had died several days prior.

Aterraka Scotland faces one count of second-degree murder and is being held on $3 million bail.

Upon Aterraka Scotland’s arrest, she admitted to police she put her wife in a sleeper hold tight “enough to where it killed her” upon learning Tiffany Scotland may have had an affair.
