WOODLAND — The arraignment of a Woodland woman accused of fatally shooting her husband was postponed a second time Friday while officials from the Yolo County Public Defender’s Office determine whether the defendant qualifies for their services.

Susan Kathleen Hoskins apparently is seeking court-appointed legal representation, but a prosecutor noted in court that, unlike the public defender’s typical clientele, Hoskins had a well-paying nursing job prior to her arrest and owns multiple properties, proceeds from which could be used to hire a private attorney.

“It does seem like she has a good job and does have assets,” Deputy District Attorney Diane Ortiz told Yolo Superior Court Commissioner Janene Beronio during Friday’s brief proceedings.

With that, Public Defender Tracie Olson agreed to accept a temporary appointment to the case while her office further investigates the matter. Hoskins is due back in Beronio’s courtroom at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

At that time, the 59-year-old Hoskins is expected to enter a plea to one count of murder with an enhancement for intentional and personal discharge of a firearm. She’s suspected of shooting her husband, 60-year-old Bryan Morris Hoskins, in the chest on the night of Aug. 3 before calling 911 and turning herself in.

Family members of both Bryan and Susan Hoskins declined to comment as they left the court building. Susan Hoskins remains in custody at the Yolo County Jail, where she’s being held without bail.

Woodland police say they’re still investigating the alleged motive in the shooting, which occurred inside Susan Hoskins’ Knollwood Drive condominium. Neighbors said the couple lived apart, occupying separate condos on the same cul-de-sac.
