Woman wanted in stabbing death of ex-boyfriend turns herself in

Doreen Starrish

The woman who allegedly stabbed her ex-boyfriend and then took off with their two young daughters turned herself into authorities early this morning.

Doreen Starrish, 28, turned herself at the King County Jail, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.

She is being held for investigation of first-degree assault, domestic violence. It’s unclear when the charge will be increased to murder;  her ex-boyfriend, Aaron Smith, died in the days following the attack. Details of how and when Starrish turned herself in have not been released by the sherif’s office.

Police say that after the stabbing last Thursday, Starrish fled with the couple’s 7- and 3-year-old daughters, triggering an Amber alert. The girls were later found with a relative later Thursday, but Starrish had disappeared.
