A 30-year-old woman was jailed Monday on surmise of manslaughter after policemen were informed by the medical examiner that her husband died as a result of direct violence injury.
According to arresting records, officers with Unified Police responded on an oblivious male near 4800 S Townsend way in Kearns on March 11.
After police and Unified Fire arrived, they found Carlos Vizcarra-Corona, 33, dead.
Inspectors said his wife, Veronica Vizcarra, told them her husband had a serious alcohol problem and consumes too much. Corona had been in the hospital for alcohol abuse about 4 months ago, records state.
Officers noticed Corona had medicinal bruises found on his chest, back and face and his wife told them he had been in a row at work about 2 weeks ago but Corona’s sister said she had a dispute with Veronica Vizcarra on the scene and that her brother had not been in a fight at work, according to reports.
The Medical Examiner told investigators that Corona did have some serious medical issues due to alcohol use, however, his cause of death was direct force wound with a ruptured resentment and would be ruled a murder.
The Medical examiner said the wound was in a stage of healing but was unable to heal due to the huge damage.
Detectives continued their investigation and talked to several known witnesses who had spoken to Corona between February 27 and March 11. All of the eyewitnesses said Corona had told them his wife had thumped him with a staple or nail gun on February 27.
Some of the witnesses were able to provide photos of the man’s injuries that were consonant with the restorative injuries located on his body the day he died.
Two of the known witnesses who work with Corona said he did not get into a dispute with any co-workers as his wife had told police.
