BURNS, Ore. (KOIN) – A 53-year-old woman is charged with murder in connection with a man’s death in Harney County earlier this fall.

Shelly Hubeek was identified as a person of interest by Oregon State Police after detectives found the body of 59-year-old Albert Deiter on Oct. 17 at a home along West Hayes Street in Burns.

A secret indictment against Hubeek was unsealed last week during Hubeek’s arraignment.

She is charged with murder, manslaughter and assault.

Police have not said what led up to the killing, but court documents show that Hubeek used a knife.

Her next court date is set for February.
