A June 1 trial has been scheduled for a Kennewick woman accused of forcing her way into the family home of her sister’s ex-boyfriend and attacking his mother with a screwdriver and picture frames.
Larissa Rae Iracheta, 25, allegedly went with her sister to the Kennewick home on March 7 after they ran into Robert Carrillo, his family and friends earlier that night at a bar.
Iracheta pleaded innocent Thursday in Benton County Superior Court to first-degree burglary and second-degree assault.
Her sister, Victoria Hoover, already appeared in court on a charge of residential burglary with a domestic violence allegation, online court records show. Her trial is set for May 26.
Carrillo is the former significant other of Hoover, according to court documents. Their encounter at a bar ended with one of the sisters spitting on Carrillo.
The sisters later entered the Carrillo home on West Fifth Avenue and, after being pushed outside, were able to force their way back inside, court documents said.
A witness claims that’s when everything “got crazy,” with Iracheta pulling picture frames from the wall and swinging them as a weapon.
The witness also told Kennewick police that Iracheta had an object in her hand — later identified as a screwdriver — and ended up striking Carrillo’s mother, Julia Anne Muradanes, in the eye during what was described as a melee, documents said.
Iracheta told police she did not hit Muradanes with the tool, but admitted coming back into the home after being pushed outside, court documents said. She said when she reentered she was “flailing wildly” and hit Muradanes with a flat hand.
Iracheta also alleged that she only vaguely remembered grabbing picture frames and said she might have hit Carrillo with one.
When Deputy Prosecutor Terry Bloor filed the charges against Iracheta on March 13, he said the extent of the injury to Muradanes was unknown but “she is in danger of losing the eye.”
Iracheta has posted bond on $10,000 bail. She was told to stay away from Muradanes and Carrillo until the case is resolved.
