PORT ORCHARD, Wash. — The woman accused of helping a man who shot and killed a Washington state trooper during a traffic stop is 32-year-old Jessi Leigh Foster.
Jail records show that Foster was booked into the Kitsap County jail Thursday afternoon for investigation of rendering criminal assistance. Her bail was set at $500,000.
Investigators have not said how she may have helped the 28-year-old killer, Joshua Blake. Blake shot trooper Tony Radulescu during a traffic stop, then killed himself at a home on a dirt road as a SWAT team moved in.
Documents show that Foster and Blake had tussled in court over custody of their young child in 2010. Blake accused her of having a severe drinking problem and being unstable, while a friend of Foster wrote that Blake was never around for the child because he'd been in prison.
