Tahoe stabbing death case: Mary Baymiller to be arraigned today in Sparks

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – Mary Baymiller, accused of stabbing her husband to death in an October incident at the couple’s Lake Tahoe home, will be arraigned at 2 p.m. today at Sparks Justice Court.

Former Incline Village justice court Judge James V. Mancuso – who is sitting in for current Judge Alan Tiras, who is out of town – will hear the case, according to a Thursday morning phone interview with Mancuso.

Baymiller, 73, waived an extradition hearing on Monday and was transported from Fresno, Calif., to Sparks, on Wednesday.

“It’s my understanding she was booked into jail yesterday … ,” said Deputy District Attorney Elliott Sattler, who said he will not attend today’s hearing.

Baymiller was arrested on Wednesday, Jan. 20, at her residence in Fresno, and is charged with one count of open murder with use of a deadly weapon.

The case stems from an Oct. 5 incident, which left Charles Baymiller, 73, dead, and Mary Baymiller, who at the time was 72-years-old, in intensive care at Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno for nearly a month with multiple stabbing injuries, after an apparent altercation at the couple’s Lakeshore Boulevard home in Incline Village.

WCSO Sgt. Greg Herrera confirmed in a November interview that multiple kitchen-type knives were used in the incident, and it was previously reported Charles Baymiller’s wounds did not appear self-inflicted.
