REDDING, Calif. – A woman accused of killing her ex-husband has been charged with murder and currently has a bail set at $1 million, according to the Shasta County District Attorney.

54-year-old Annastacia “Stacia” Colosio of Redding was arrested Friday, Feb. 5 after being released from a hospital due to a wound to her right leg, according to the County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit.

Deputies said they were investigating a disturbance that had been reported in the 5400 block of Deschutes Road on Thursday, not long after midnight. They said they discovered a dead man at the property who was identified as 57-year-old Ronald “John” Colosio of Anderson, California.

The man appeared to have died from a stab wound, said deputies, who also discovered his former wife, injured, inside the home.

Detectives said they discovered that the former couple has been divorced for more than 10 years, but had maintained a relationship that “would turn physically violent at times.”

On Feb. 10, the Shasta County District Attorney’s Office announced Annastacia Colosio was arraigned for a murder charge, in connection with the death of her ex-husband, Ronald John Colosio, Jr.

Annastacia Colosio remains in custody. The preliminary hearing is set for February 18, 2021, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
