KIRA TREVINO CASE: Murder charges against husband
Trevino, 39, is charged with two counts of second-degree murder in a case that is complicated by the fact his wife's body has not been found. Bail was set at $1 million.
Trevino called St. Paul police on Sunday, Feb. 24 to report his wife missing. He said Kira, 30, left to run errands on Friday morning and didn't show up for work Saturday at Mall of America.
According to the criminal complaint, blood was found in the trunk of the car, and also in the bedroom of the couple's house on Iowa Street.
"Based on the amount of blood found in her home and the vehicle and based on the fact that it is highly uncharacteristic of her to be missing for nearly a full week without any contact with friends, family or coworkers, there is probable cause to conclude that she is dead," the criminal complaint said.
DATE NIGHT + RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS
According to the charges, Trevino said Kira had been suffering a mid-life crisis and that she had been leaving him for two to three days at a time, often staying with friends. He also said he recently learned his wife was lying about where she had been staying, and friends and family both told police they were aware of the couple's relationship problems.
Trevino said they met at home later that night and watched a movie, then got ready for bed together. He said he last saw his wife at 8:30 a.m. Friday, when he assumed she left to go work out at the gym and go tanning before reporting to work at the mall.
BLOOD STAIN IN SHAPE OF BODY
When police ordered the car be towed, the tow truck operator found blood near the trunk opening. Police also found a blood-stained trunk liner near the car.
