Third person charged in Marine wife's death in CAThird person charged with murder in death of Camp Pendleton Marine's wife, pleads not guilty
VISTA, Calif. (AP) ' A third person has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of a Camp Pendleton Marine's wife.
Dorothy Maraglino denied the charge Tuesday in the death last month of 22-year-old Brittany Killgore. A judge in Vista set her bail at $3 million.
Prosecutor Patrick Espinoza identified the 36-year-old Maraglino as a girlfriend of another person charged in the case ' 45-year-old Marine Staff Sgt. Louis Ray Perez. Espinoza says the couple lived with 25-year-old Jessica Lynn Lopez, who is also charged.
Maraglino owns a Fallbrook home where authorities say Killgore was killed after Perez invited her on a dinner cruise. Maraglino was arrested last week in a downtown San Diego hotel.
Authorities have not disclosed a motive for the killing.
