Veteran standing trial for attempting to kill hospital worker
January 31, 2014, 05:00 AM

Timothy Seith

A homeless 53-year-old veteran accused of trying to fatally choke a Veterans Affairs hospital worker over housecleaning will stand trial for attempted murder.

Timothy Page Seith, 53, is also charged with assault and making threats against the woman. Seith has pleaded not guilty but was held to answer on all charges after a preliminary hearing on the evidence.

Prosecutors say the 55-year-old victim invited Seith to stay with her for a few weeks because she knew he was a transient. On Nov. 27, he allegedly grew angry over what he perceived to be her lack of appreciation for his housework and choked and threatened her. She broke free and tried calling 911 but Seith knocked the phone from her hand and began choking her again, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

She was reportedly able to free herself a second time and run for help. South San Francisco police arrested him nearby.

Seith, who is in custody without bail, returns to court Feb. 13 to enter a Superior Court plea and possibly set a trial date.

If convicted, he faces up to 12 years in prison.
