Christina Korbe, wife to imprisoned Robert Korbe, was arraigned today on charges stemming from the death of Spc. Agent Sam Hicks. Christina Korbe is believed to have gunned Hicks down. Christina Korbe is facing a homicide charge, a charge that could mean a hefty sentence for her if convicted. Christina Korbe is believed to have shot Hicks during an attempted arrest. The arrest was meant for her husband, who is a known cocaine dealer. Christina Korbe got involved in the arrest and proceeded to shoot the arresting agent.
Korbe, 40, had her two children by her side when her home was invaded by investigators. Her attorney claims that this was sufficient grounds for Christina Korbe to shoot Hicks. Christina Korbe claims that the officers never identified themselves as being part of the police department. Thus, she claims, she might had mis-identified Hicks as an intruder and thus proceeded to shoot him.
Christina Korbe’s husband is mentioned in an indictment alongside 35 other suspected drug traffickers. Christina Korbe’s husband was in court yesterday, being represented by a court-appointed attorney.
Our condolences go out to Sam Hick’s family. This is indeed a tragedy, and something that requires more investigation. As far as Christina Korbe goes, we can only hope she is tried to the full extent of the law as is her husband. However, what occurred requires further investigation as we can only guess as to her motives behind shooting the special agent.
