Pierce County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a woman believed to be involved in a deadly home-invasion robbery near Puyallup last week.

The woman was booked Thursday night into Pierce County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, first-degree kidnapping, first-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree robbery and three counts of first-degree rendering criminal assistance. She’s expected to make her first court appearance this afternoon.

Two masked men armed with guns broke into a home in the 6100 block of 72nd Street Court East the morning of Nov. 3. They woke up a man and his girlfriend who were asleep inside and pistol-whipped the man. The robbers demanded jewelry and access to a safe.

The man managed to get a shotgun and exchanged gunfire with the robbers as they ran from the house. One of the robbers, 31-year-old Michael Aaron Price, was killed. Investigators have said they believe his partner in crime accidentally killed Price during the exchange.

Investigators continue to look for the surviving robber. Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer said the woman is believed to connected to the robbers’ getaway car.

    I’m sure she will give up the remaining thief with a little motivation from the prosecutes office in the form of a reduced sentence.

    When there is sooooo much more information in the Affidavit of Probable Cause sworn to under penalty of perjury by a deputy prosecuting attorney, why does the newspaper hold back and print so very, very little.

    Even if you withhold the names, there is sooooo much more to the story.

    Also, any public member can go to the LINX website and look up the women book in the last 24 hours and see the one booked for murder.

  3. Her name is Layci Marie Moore and she has NO BAIL!

  4. EAXCTLY pen_mightier_than_sword. In my opinion TNT is really bad about only giving half the facts. Its PUBLIC information.
