      Albrecht Muth indicted in Viola Drath slaying

      The husband of the 91-year-old D.C. journalist found dead inside her Georgetown home has been indicted this week on a charge of first degree murder.

      Albrecht Muth is charged in the August strangulation and beating death of his 91-year-old wife Viola Drath, a German journalist and socialite, in the fashionable Georgetown neighborhood.

      Muth has denied killing his wife.

      Muth also goes by the name Sheik Ali Al-Muthaba on his website and has claimed to be a general in the Iraqi army.
