A woman suspected of stabbing her husband, a respected Navy surgeon, to death before stabbing herself several times at their North Park home pleaded not guilty to murder Wednesday in an arraignment at her Scripps Mercy Hospital bed. She was then ordered held on $2 million bail.
Jennifer Trayers, 42, a bank employee, is accused of killing Lt. Cmdr. Frederick John Trayers III, 41. San Diego police homicide Lt. Kevin Rooney would not say when the attack likely occurred, but he said neighbors did not report hearing any disturbances at the couple’s home.
LCDR Trayers was reportedly the Chief Resident in Emergency Medicine at Naval Medical Center San Diego.
