Charleston woman suspected in 2019 murder is arrested

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia woman suspected to be involved in a 2019 murder was arrested, police said.

Charleston police took Samantha Ilise Slater, 33, into custody Thursday afternoon in Dunbar.

Police sought her in the July 17, 2019, death of Adam Swim. The 41-year-old was found dead in his Charleston home with a gunshot wound on his head, according to police.

A circuit court warrant went out for her arrest in late July of this year for murder, first degree robbery, burglary and first-degree sexual assault.

It was unclear whether Slater had an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
