LAKEWOOD — The Pierce County prosecutor has charged a Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier with first-degree murder in the shooting death of his wife at their Lakewood apartment.
Prosecutor Mark Lindquist called the shooting last Thursday night an unfortunate example of domestic violence. He says 20-year-old Skylar Nemetz shot 19-year-old Tarrah Nemetz in the back of the head with an AR-15 rifle because he was furious another man had purchased alcohol for her.
Nemetz is scheduled for arraignment Wednesday afternoon in Tacoma.
