Former officer who took her life in jail was in a throuple with a cop killer and another woman

Julia Peat (Mohave County Jail)

New details have emerged in a case where a former Los Angeles Police Department officer took her life in jail after fatally shooting her boyfriend.

The incident, which took place on June 22 in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, reportedly took place after retired LAPD employee Julia Peat shot her boyfriend several times after he returned inside from cleaning their pool.

The victim, Mark Corbett, succumbed to his wounds.

Peat reportedly claimed she feared for her life after learning her boyfriend had an extensive criminal history from another woman- one the couple had been engaging in a three-way with.

The unidentified woman reportedly claimed that Corbett had admitted that he “had killed a cop and has not been arrested for that incident.”

The woman is also believed to have claimed that Corbett told her he would kill her if she ever said anything.

Spooked by this, the third wheel of the relationship informed Peat, who apparently took matters into her own hands.

Corbett’s criminal record shows that he was in fact a former inmate in the state of Washington, but no details are available as to the specifics of his crimes.

Correctional records show Corbett was sentenced in 1979 to two years and six months behind bars in Walla Walla County, Washington, adding that he also went by the alias “Mark Lemon Peck.”

According to the Los Angeles Times, Peat admitted to planning the murder.

Prior to the shooting, the former officer had attempted to move all her firearms out of the home and move Corbett’s property out of the residences as well, telling him that she did not love him anymore.

However, when she deduced that he likely suspected her knowing about his prior alleged crimes, she recovered her firearms.

The weapon reportedly used in the homicide was a 9mm Beretta pistol. Law enforcement discovered eleven expended shell casings at the scene of the crime.

Peat claimed that Corbett’s last words were, “Why?”

Throughout the investigation, local law enforcement obtain testimony from Peat and her relatives, including her daughter.

The daughter claimed that her mother had recently had a “manic episode,” and feared for her life.

Peat was charged with first-degree homicide and ultimately took her life while in custody.
