The generalization of the Yang-Baxter equations in the presence of ℤ2 grading along both chain and time directions is presented and an integrable model of t-j type with staggered disposition of shifts of the spectral parameter along the chain is constructed. The Hamiltonian of the model is computed in the fermionic formulation. It involves three neighbour site interactions and therefore can be considered as a zigzag ladder model. The algebraic Bethe ansatz technique is applied and the eigenstates as well as the eigenvalues of the transfer matrix of the model are found. It is argued that in the thermodynamic limit the lowest energy of the model is formed by the quarter filling of the states by fermions instead of the usual half filling.
