Arlington woman charged with killing her long-missing husband

An Arlington woman who was arrested after her ex-husband’s remains were found buried on her property was charged with second-degree murder today.

Michele Louise Donohue, 48, caused the death of Byron Wright, in August 2004, charging papers allege. Donohue was arrested Thursday after human remains were found buried under a concrete slab, according to a probable-cause affidavit filed in Snohomish County Superior Court.

Wright went missing in 2004, and Donohue filed for divorce in 2005, claiming that Wright had run off with another woman. She was granted the Arlington house, located in the 8100 block of Wade Road; a lot next to the house; all personal property; eight vehicles; 98 savings bonds; Boeing stock; half of his retirement; and other investments.

Donohue’s current husband told investigators his wife had told him she’d stabbed her ex-husband, the affidavit said.

Donohue remains in custody on $1 million bail.
