Pella police say they responded to a domestic disturbance call and found 46-year-old Tracy Mondabough of Ottumwa inside a vehicle with serious injuries. Mondabough died before she could be taken to a hospital.
Fifty-five-year-old Michelle Boat of Pella was originally charged with violation of a no-contact order against her estranged husband. The charges were amended to include a first-degree murder charge in connection with Mondabough’s death.
Boat is being held in the Marion County Jail on a $2 million bond.
