Juneau woman indicted for murder

Juneau woman indicted for murder

Charge stems from March domestic violence case

Nine months after a fatal assault, a Juneau grand jury indicted a local woman for second-degree murder, according to a press release from the Juneau Police Department.

Jamie Diane Moy Singh, 35, was arrested Friday after the grand jury handed down its indictment Thursday, the release states. The charge stems from an alleged March 6 assault that resulted in the death of 59-year-old Mary Lou Singh.

During the March 6 assault, Mary Lou Singh suffered a head injury and was taken to Providence Hospital in Anchorage, police said at the time. She was pronounced dead 10 days later. The assault happened in the 8100 block of Snipe Court, and Jamie Diane Moy Singh was also taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital for injuries suffered in the incident, police said.

The younger Singh is a Juneau resident, JPD Lt. Krag Campbell said Saturday. Mary Lou Singh was a California resident, JPD Public Safety Manager Erann Kalwara said in March.

Officers took Singh to Lemon Creek Correctional Center on Friday and she’s being held on $50,000 bail, according to the release.

According to electronic court records, Singh also faces one charge each of manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, first-degree assault and second-degree assault. As of Saturday at noon, an arraignment date had not been set and the case had not been assigned to a judge, according to court records.
