EVERETT, Wash. — Authorities say three people have been taken into custody in the Jan. 4 death of a man in Everett.

Everett Police say a woman and two men were arrested Thursday in connection with the death of Michael T. Boone. The Daily Herald reports that the woman allegedly distracted Boone so a robber could sneak up and attack him.

He was then tied to a tree and left to die, according to The Daily Herald. Autopsy results revealed his cause of death to be exposure/hypothermia, according to police.

The 33-year-old woman was arrested at about 2 a.m. Thursday and booked on a charge of second-degree murder.

The men were arrested later in the day on Thursday. One is also being held on a second-degree murder charge and the other was booked on a charge of first-degree robbery, according to police.
