Kent woman charged in husband’s stabbing death

A 45-year-old Kent woman was charged today in connection with the stabbing death of her husband last week.

Janice Marie Burrell is being held on a charge of second-degree murder in the King County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail. She is scheduled to be arraigned on June 11.

Kent Assistant Police Chief Pat Lowery says officers were called Friday night to a medical clinic in Kent after a teenage boy sought help there. He said a family member had been stabbed in a car and was bleeding in the parking lot.

The victim, Arthur D. Smith, was pronounced dead at the scene.
