Veteran pleads not guilty to the attempted murder of benefactor
February 14, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

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, pleaded not guilty Thursday to that charge along with counts of assault and making criminal threats. He also was scheduled for a May 19 jury trial.

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, 2013, 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, faces up to 12 years in prison.
