Coroner: Boulder woman stabbed to death

BOULDER ” The Boulder County coroner says a woman found dead in her home had been stabbed several times in the neck and chest.

Police found the body of 36-year-old Laura Swan on the kitchen floor Monday, shortly after her ex-husband called authorities to say he had been involved in a domestic dispute.

Boulder County Coroner Thomas Faure has ruled the death a homicide.

An arrest report says 45-year-old Alfred Michael Strauss told police he and Swan had divorced in 2005, but reconciled in December. They were living together in the home with their two boys, ages 2 and 4.

Strauss says the children were in day care at the time of the stabbing.

A hearing is scheduled for tomorrow to determine if Strauss will continue to be held without bond.

The children are in protective custody.
