$500,000 bond for man held in wife’s slaying

A man who police say called 911 after killing his wife will remain in jail on $500,000 bond.

A judge increased Craig R. Cosby’s bail from $250,000 during his first appearance on a second-degree murder charge in Stevens County Superior Court today.

Cosby, 68, was arrested Saturday in the front yard of his home in the 1200 block of Overlook Boulevard in Marcus, a small town along the Columbia River in north Stevens County.

His wife, Susan May Cosby, 53, was found dead from gunshot wounds inside the home, according to the Stevens County Sheriff’s Office.
