BAKERSFIELD, CA - The wife of a local attorney, who was arrested for her shooting last month, has died. The Sheriff's Department confirms Trivia Madrigali, wife of attorney Mark Madrigali, died early Wednesday morning.
Mark Madrigali is charged with attempted murder, for shooting his wife the night of June 12th. Although 17 News could not reach the District Attorney's office late Wednesday afternoon, it's reasonable to assume Madrigali could now be charged with murder.
According to court documents, Madrigali told police the shooting was an accident. He said in the documents his actions speak to his innocence, including his call to 9-1-1, making no attempt to flee and not washing blood or gunshot residue from his hands or clothing.
The Sheriff's Department has launched a death investigation. A spokesperson says an autopsy on Trivia Madrigali may be completed as soon as Thursday.
Mark Madrigali's next hearing is set for July 18th. His attorney declined to comment.
