BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — A registered sex offender has been charged with first-degree murder in his wife's death after an autopsy revealed she bled to death.
The Times-News (http://bit.ly/1i44CCg) reports that 34-year-old Ronnie Kincaid Jr., 34, of Burley, was charged Thursday. He has been held in Cassia County Jail since Tuesday on a probation violation.
Police found his 34-year-old Melissia Dawn Kincaid Sunday in the couple's mobile home, after he reported her death.
An autopsy was performed Tuesday as investigators processed evidence at the home.
Cassia County Sheriff Jay Heward called it "a tragic event" and in a statement declined to release other details "due to the sensitivity and nature of this crime."
Kincaid may be arraigned Friday in Cassia County Magistrate Court.
He was convicted of third-degree rape in Klamath County, Oregon, in 2001.
