A woman in Massachusetts is accused of slaying a man during a dispute over forged checks and then attempting to hide the crime by wrapping his body in a curtain.
Around 3 p.m. the previous days, officers with the Newton Police Department conducting a wellbeing check on Garber at his residence discovered his body in the curtain, which was concealed under construction materials, officials said.
According to investigators, Garber was last heard from days earlier and may have been dead for more than 24 hours.
Middlesex District Attorney Marian T. Ryan claimed Ke made a “concerted effort” to strategically place the materials so anyone entering the victim’s home wouldn’t see Garber's body.
Ryan alleged the suspect was a friend and former tenant of the victim and the two had been spending time together when he became aware Ke allegedly was forging checks in his name that totaled over $40,000.
Garber died from blunt force trauma after he confronted Ke and she allegedly attacked him, according to the district attorney.
Ke was ordered held without bail.
