The Docket

Bail Hearing for Suspect in Fatal Stabbing in Queen Anne: A judge has set bail at $1 million for a 38-year-old man arrested in a fatal stabbing outside a restaurant in lower Queen Anne Hill early Friday morning. The suspect allegedly walked across the street and stabbed the 26-year-old man in the chest in an unprovoked attack. The suspect left the scene but was arrested a short time later. He waived his court appearance at a bail hearing on Saturday. A second appearance is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon at the King County Jail.

Arraignment in Belltown Double Homicide: A 46-year-old man accused of killing two men at a Belltown apartment in January 2016 has been booked into the King County Jail. The defendant, Raymond Walter Sanchez, was arrested in South Carolina earlier this month and returned to King County on Friday after waiving extradition proceedings. He is charged with two counts of Murder in the Second Degree for the murders of Larry Humphrey, 65, and Holger Sippach, 58. Seattle Police detectives linked the defendant to the murders through DNA evidence. Arraignment is set for June 29 at the King County Courthouse. Bail is set at $1 million.
