AMARILLO -- The woman accused of murdering another Amarillo woman last week had allegedly threatened the victim numerous times.

28-year-old Katie Yvonee Spielbauer is charged with the murder of 32-year-old Robin Diane Spielbauer.

Randall County investigators say the suspect believed her husband was carrying on an affair with the victim who was his ex-wife.

Investigators were able to connect Katie Spielbauer to the murder through a Facebook picture showing her holding a pink 22-caliber handgun.

They belive that gun was used in beating and shooting Robin Spielbauer.

Her body was found lying in a ditch next to her car last week just west of Amarillo.
