LEWISTON, Idaho — Detectives say they are still trying to contact potential witnesses and sort through details surround a suspicious death of a Lewiston woman.

Meanwhile, Charlene M. Mabie’s husband, Gary W. Mallory II, is being held in the Nez Perce County Jail in connection with her death.

The 48-year-old woman was found Saturday morning at her residence. Lewiston Police Department Lt. Doug Clark says early indications show Mabie died of homicidal violence.

A cause of death has not yet been determined, though an autopsy is planned for Tuesday in Spokane.

Mallory is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Nez Perce County Magistrate Court.
