Death Valley: Sun Lakes Man Accused of Killing Wife Two Years Ago in Fall at Apache Lake


Two years ago, Sun Lakes resident Francis Ray Collins reported that his wife, Linda Steer, fell off a cliff to her death on a trip to Apache Lake.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office yesterday announced the arrest of Collins, 50, and that it's seeking a second-degree murder charge on Steer in connection with her death.

A news release by the office states that "a two-year investigation has provided enough probable cause to arrest Collins..." He was booked into the Fourth Avenue jail and is being held on a $180,000 bond, the release says.
