A woman is being held in Canyon County, Idaho, on $1 million bail in the brutal June 2000 stabbing and robbery of Linda LeBrane of Port Townsend.
Sarah Pearce, 19, is scheduled to appear April 25 in Canyon County District Court to enter pleas to kidnapping, robbery, aggravated battery and arson.
Pearce is the fourth person to be charged in the case.
“Now, I finally feel safe,” LeBrane said Friday of the fourth arrest.
LeBrane confirmed Pearce was the fourth assailant Friday following a video and voice lineup at the Port Townsend police station.
Pearce was recognizable even though she had gained 20 pounds and had blond hair instead of red, LeBrane said.
