MARYSVILLE, Wash. —

Marysville detectives have arrested a second person in the stabbing death of an 82-year-old sex offender.

 

The 26-year-old man was already in Snohomish County Jail on unrelated charges.

 

Detectives said he and another suspect told people about killing Arthur Schroeder while wearing bloody clothes and holding a bag of bloody knives.

 

A 28-year-old woman was arrested Sunday in connection with the slaying.

 

Schroeder was found dead with multiple stab wounds last month in his trailer which had been ransacked.

 

Police later found his burned-out truck near Arlington.
