Seattle woman allegedly murdered by boyfriend in Nicaragua

A Seattle family is mourning after a mother was found murdered in Nicaragua, with her long-time boyfriend being the main suspect.

Multiple Nicaraguan news outlets say the body of 58-year-old Amber Yugovich was found in a road near Granada on April 8, and her American partner, Brian Bell, was arrested in connection to the murder.

Police said her body was dumped from a truck on April 6, and she had bruises on her face, missing teeth, and signs of sexual assault. Bell was arrested at a house after a police dog tracked him down, according to reports.
