Woman pleads not guilty in old Sitka murder case

Posted: Thursday, February 04, 2010

ANCHORAGE - A woman accused of killing her husband 22 years ago has pleaded not guilty in Sitka Superior Court.

The Anchorage Daily News reports Jane Limm, whose current legal name is Jane Reth, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to first-degree murder and evidence tampering. Her bail remained at $250,000 cash.

The investigation into the death of Scott Coville was reopened in 2007 by cold case investigators in Sitka and handed over to state troopers.

That led to the arrest last month of the 45-year-old woman who had been living in Oswego, Ill., in the Chicago area.

Coville disappeared in 1988 after just a few months of marriage. His body was never found.
