James Flora, 78, was booked into the Pierce County Jail on Monday, August 3, on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of his spouse, identified as 74-year-old Ella Joyce Flora.

James Flora had walked into Tacoma General Hospital and told staff that he had choked his wife during a fight at their home.

Officers with the University Place Police Department responded to the Flora family's home in the 5600 block of 61st Avenue West to perform a welfare check on the wife after the husband's statement.
