Yesterday, the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office filed four charges against a defendant: Murder in the First Degree, two counts of Assault in the First Degree, and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm in the First Degree.

In this case, the defendant is accused of shooting three individuals at close range, killing one person. When he was apprehended by police more than a week later, the defendant, who had a 4-year-old child and another passenger in his car, tried to escape by ramming into vehicles belonging to police and members of the public.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office has asked for bail to be denied in the case, citing convincing evidence that the defendant poses a substantial likelihood of danger. Our office has also requested that defendant have no contact with the victims in this case.

Today, the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office filed charges of Murder in the Second Degree (Felony Murder) and Felony Hit and Run (Death — Driving) against a 15-year-old girl accused of killing a Maple Valley man last July.

There have been questions about why we have not charged this 15-year-old…

Yesterday there were first appearance hearings for two men alleged to be involved in this Renton Police investigation.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office asked a judge to set bail at $1 million for the first defendant, and $250,000 for the second.

We argued that both men are a danger to the community and unlikely to reappear for scheduled court dates if released.

The judge set bail at $50,000 for both defendants.

For the first defendant, probable cause was found for a drive-by and first-degree unlawful gun possession. For the second defendant, probable cause was found for a drive-by and eluding police.

We anticipate getting the case referred by police today for an independent review and charging decision.
