Soledad prison guard is prime suspect in killing

Seaside police have identified Friday’s homicide victim as the wife of a correctional officer from Soledad State Prison.

Police found Maria Christina Gibson, 53, inside the couple’s apartment on the 1000 block of Highland Street on Friday morning. A neighbor had found her husband, Dan Gibson, lying at 6:30 a.m. on the ground of the apartment complex, three stories below the couple’s balcony. Gibson was flown to a San Jose hospital where he remains in custody on suspicion of homicide, police said.

An autopsy found that Maria Gibson died of asphyxiation due to strangulation, police said
