CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) -- A 34-year-old Nampa woman charged with stabbing her former boyfriend to death told investigators she was tired of him "messing with her" and that she believed he was seeing another woman.
Susana Quijano made an initial appearance in District Court Tuesday on a charge of second-degree murder in the death of 34-year-old Santiago Gamino, who is also known as Santiago Delgado Pineda. Magistrate Judge Dan Grober ordered Quijano held on $1 million bail and scheduled a preliminary hearing for Oct. 29.
Gamino's roommate called 911 Saturday night to report the stabbing, but said he did not see the attacker. Neighbors reported seeing Quijano.
Charging documents say Quijano told investigators she stabbed Gamino and threw the knife out the window of her pickup as she drove on Interstate 84. Officers have not located it.
