ASHTABULA, Ohio -- Five years after Raymond Kotomski died, his wife has been arrested and charged with his murder.

Teresa Kotomski was arrested by state Bureau of Criminal Identification agents and Ashtabula sheriff deputies early Friday on a secret indictment.

She was indicted on charges including murder.

She was picked up at her house, booked at the sheriff's department, and then taken to Geauga County where she will be held pending her arraignment on the charges.

Raymond Kotomski, a retired corrections officer, died in 2009.

At first, his death was ruled "undetermined," but in 2012 BCI was asked to investigate and determined someone intentionally poisoned him with antifreeze.

In September of 2012, when BCI announced they were reopening the Kotomski case, Fox 8's I-Team went to Teresa Kotomski's house to ask her about her deceased husband's death, and she slammed the door on us.

His grandson, Nikkolas Mamula, had said he would like someone to be held accountable for his grandfather’s death.

“I would like to have some closure,” Mamula said during a Sept. 2012 press conference at BCI’s office in Richfield.

The victim’s daughter, Monica Mamula, also said at that time she is very thankful the case is being investigated. She said she has not talked to Kotomski’s wife, Teresa, since her father’s death.

The arraignment is expected to take place in the next few days.
