The murder was obviously committed by someone she knew well. And knew she had a gun. There would be no reason to tie this woman up if the intent was to leave her alive. Either she had information on the killer that would threaten exposure, possibly prison or their life, or she was a direct threat to their livelihood and security. I'm guessing her murder was to silence her.
The person tried to strangle her and realized it's quite hard to manually strangle the life out of someone. The gun was most likely found when searching the house.
According to stuff I've read it can take up to fifteen minutes, depending on the factors... That's a long time to stare somebody in the face while you are choking them to death... Yes Cate, I already know you can strangle someone from behind... No need to correct me...
