Charges filed in Snohomish High stabbings

A 15-year-old Snohomish High School student accused of stabbing two schoolmates on Monday was charged today with attempted first-degree attempted murder and second-degree assault.

Prosecutors allege the sophomore stabbed the two girls, both freshman, in a campus restroom before the start of school Monday morning. Police believe the victims were selected at random.

The suspect is being held in the Denney Juvenile Justice Center in Everett in lieu of $1 million bail.

Because of the seriousness of the alleged crimes, she will face a mandatory hearing to determine whether she will be charged as an adult. The Times generally does not name juvenile suspects unless they’re facing criminal charges in adult court.

One of the victims was treated at an Everett hospital and released Monday. The condition of the second victim, who police say was stabbed up to 25 times, was upgraded today from serious to satisfactory.
