PEORIA, Ariz. The wife of a Peoria man found dead in his garage earlier this month has been arrested in the case.

Peoria police say 41-year-old Michelle Dawn Gibson is being held without bond on suspicion of conspiring to commit murder in the first degree, conspiracy and hindering prosecution.

They don't know Friday if she has a lawyer.

The couple's teenage son was previously taken into custody in connection with the death of 39-year-old Steven Gibson.

His body was found dead at the family's Peoria home about 2 a.m. on March 1.

Investigators say Steven Gibson was beaten with an aluminum baseball bat and stabbed with a knife.

Police allege that Gibson's wife and son plotted the murder.

Court documents show there were previous domestic violence incidents involving Gibson and his spouse.
