AWood­bridge woman who was or­dered de­tained Wed­nes­day by a fed­eral judge is be­lieved to have helped her hus­band con­ceal the mur­der of a man out­side their home last year, ac­cord­ing to a fed­eral prose­cu­tor.

An­inha Spear-Zuleta, 31, of 135 Rim­mon Road, faces fed­eral charges of rob­bery, kidnapping by use of force and aid­ing and abet­ting her hus­band, Christo­pher Spear, 45, of the same ad­dress. She also faces state charges of con­spir­acy to com­mit se­cond-de­gree kidnapping and se­cond-de­gree lar­ceny.

In his mo­tion for pre­trial de­ten­tion, As­sis­tant U.S. At­tor­ney Joseph Viz­car­rondo wrote there is ev­i­dence Spear-Zuleta as­sisted Spear “in con­ceal­ing the mur­der of Alan Robin­son Jr., which oc­curred out­side the Spear home in Wood­bridge in April 2018.”

Nei­ther Spear-Zuleta nor Spear has been charged with Robin­son’s mur­der. He was 37 at the time of his death, liv­ing in Mil­ford. Wood­bridge po­lice found him ly­ing on Rim­mon Road, out­side the Spear home, on the morn­ing of April 4 af­ter res­i­dents called 911 to re­port they heard gun­fire.

Robin­son had been shot in the head and torso.

Viz­car­rondo wrote in his mo­tion that au­thor­i­ties re­cov­ered video­tape from the Spear home “show­ing events within mo­ments of Robin­son’s death, in­clud­ing Anin- ha Spear-Zuleta run­ning into the house, clutch­ing what ap­pears to be a hand­gun.”

“Fur­ther, from the con­text of the video,” Viz­car­rondo wrote, “the sus­pected firearm is likely the very weapon used to kill Alan Robin­son.”
