BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A Billings woman who did not show up to testify at her husband’s deliberate homicide trial was arrested on a material witness warrant and another warrant charging her with possession of drugs with intent to distribute.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/10jVcdA ) 26-year-old Tricia Marie Scott was arrested Monday, just hours after the trial for 27-year-old Martin Pond Jr. was vacated and rescheduled for Dec. 1. Witnesses and dozens of potential jurors were sent home.

Pond is charged with shooting and killing 52-year-old Allen Douglas Alderman at Alderman’s residence in Lockwood on Jan. 3. Charging documents say Scott was at Alderman’s house when Pond showed up and the two men got in to an argument.

Pond remains jailed with bail set at $500,000.
