On January 19, officers went to the Teferas’ home in the 2200 block of Wighill Circle, after David reported finding his wife’s body, say police. Due to some circumstances deemed suspicious, detectives responded to investigate.

The Placer County Coroner eventually ruled Tsegereda’s death to be a homicide, and a month-long investigation led detectives culminated in David’s arrest.

He was booked into the South Placer Jail on suspicion of homicide.
