Marsing man pleads guilty in wife's oil-change death

MARSING, Idaho (KBOI) - A 38-year-old man has admitted to killing his wife after he said she died changing the oil to her vehicle.

Idaho State Police says Rodney Wayne Bibbey, 38, was charged Monday morning for the first degree murder of his wife, Trina Bibbey, who died April 4. The 35-year-old woman died at her residence near Marsing, Idaho.

According to court records, Bibbey pleaded guilty to second degree murder in exchange for the reduction in charge from first degree.

Doug Emery, Owyhee County prosecutor, said Bibbey was found dead at her home. When investigators arrived, they found her pinned under a vehicle. An expert testified that there was no way a jack failed on its own.
