Trial set in Nampa murder case

November 27, 2013 

Susan Cordoba Quijano

A 34-year-old Nampa woman accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death will go to trial March 4.

Susana Cordoba Quijano pleaded not guilty earler this month to second-degree murder, use of a deadly weapon and destruction of evidence.

She is accused of killing Santiago Gamino at his Nampa home on Oct. 12. Gamino was also known as Santiago Delgado Pineda.

After stabbing Gamino, Quijano placed the knife back in her purse and fled, police said. Prosecutors have said they don't believe she planned the stabbing.

Quijano was arrested a day after the murder and has been held in the Canyon County jail on $1 million bond.

Her attorney had asked for the bond to be reduced but earlier this month withdrew the motion.

The trial is expected to last four days.
