INDEPENDENCE, Iowa — A 32-year-old woman has been accused of stabbing to death her former husband in northeast Iowa.
Hillary Hunziker is charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of Jason Hunziker at his home northwest of Independence. Online records say she remained in custody Tuesday. Court records don’t list an attorney who could comment for Hillary Hunziker.
A criminal complaint says a child called 911 early Monday morning and said, “My mom just stabbed my dad.” That was followed by a call from Jason Hunziker, who said his wife had stabbed him. The complaint says the arriving deputies soon found Jason Hunziker dead in the home.
The complaint says Hillary Hunziker and a child were found a short time later in Robins and says Hillary Hunziker admitted stabbing her ex-husband.
