Sheriff: Man kills woman who says he’s not baby’s father

June 6, 2019

SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say the 23-year-old mother of an infant was fatally stabbed and that the woman’s 59-year-old husband was arrested.

The King County Sheriff’s Office says a call came from an apartment in SeaTac Tuesday night and that dispatchers heard a disturbance before the call became disconnected.

The sheriff’s office says as deputies arrived, a man called 911 to say he was exiting the apartment with a 2-month-old baby.

The sheriff’s office says deputies found a 23-year-old woman inside who had been stabbed multiple times.

SeattlePI.com reports the two argued after the woman told the man he was not the father of the baby, according to probable cause documents.

Documents say the suspect told investigators the victim slapped him and then he stabbed her.

The man was booked into King County Jail on investigation of murder.
