Sean Baker applauded for good behavior during high intensive supervision

A woman charged with the the murder of her boyfriend was scheduled to attend a drug treatment program in West Virgina, but has been awarded for her “good behavior” and will instead stay local for treatment.

Sean Baker, 35, was charged with second-degree murder while armed in the Jan. 31 stabbing death of 35-year-old Robert Wiggins.

Baker said she stabbed Wiggins in self defense. Baker was released on bond and into the high intensity supervision program (HISP.)

Baker attended court Thursday, when she originally planned to be in the West Virginia facility. Baker did not attend the out of district facility because she has continually tested negative for drugs.

Baker will be seen back in court on September 9 for a felony status conference.
