Woman indicted in ’07 slaying of husband returned to US
WARREN, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a woman who fled to her native Brazil after fatally shooting her husband more than 10 years ago has been brought back to northeast Ohio.
The Vindicator reports 53-year-old Claudia Hoerig was booked into the Trumbull County Jail early Thursday. She was indicted in April 2007 on an aggravated murder charge in the slaying of Karl Hoerig, a 43-year-old United Airlines pilot and major in the U.S. Air Force Reserves, at their Newton Falls home.
Authorities say Claudia Hoerig fled to Brazil the day of the slaying on March 12, 2007.
She was arrested in 2016 when the Brazilian supreme court revoked her citizenship and then voted last March to send her back to the U.S.
Hoerig is expected to be appointed an attorney during an arraignment Friday.
