A man from Tieton has been arrested again on a murder charge in connection with the death of a woman from Tieton in May of this year. 56-year-old Edward Peyser was arrested on Friday and is awaiting an appearance before a judge in the Yakima County jail. Authorities arrested him for the second-degree murder of Jennifer Patterson. The 33-year-old woman's body was found May 4 in a field near Peyser's home in Tieton. An autopsy found she died of strangulation.
Peyser was first arrested in May shortly after the death but was released because of a lack of evidence.
He's being held in the Yakima County jail on bail set at $100,000.
