Yakima Police have identified the woman killed in her home over the weekend.  62 year old Jerene Matta was found beaten and stabbed to death in her Yakima home at 1809 Greenway Street Saturday night. Yakima Police Captain Rod Light said the woman was killed before someone set here home on fire.  However Light says “Matta’s body didn’t suffer any burns  because she was found in a different part of the house away from where the actual fire originated from.”  Light says that will help in the investigation because her body was in tack.

This is a neighborhood that has been hit by crime in recent years, in fact Matta herself was interviewed by a local television station four years ago after a fatal shooting in the neighborhood.

An autopsy on Matta’s body is set for today.
