Thursday Memo: Drunk driver pleas today … Boeing layoffs … Mariners lose, again

Drunk driver to enter pleas today. Mark W. Mullan, 50, the man accused of hitting a family in North Seattle, killing two and critically injuring two others, is scheduled to enter pleas to vehicular homicide and assault in King County Superior Court this morning. Mullan, who had previous DUI arrests, had a preliminary breath-alcohol level of 0.22 percent in the North Seattle incident, nearly three times the state’s legal limit of 0.08 percent. We’ll bring you an update when that happens.

Those coming Boeing layoffs: Engineers on Boeing’s 787 project have been told — by email — that while they were responsible for saving the program, layoffs are on the horizon. How crummy is that?

Second arrest in beating of WSU faculty member: A 23-year-old man has been arrested in the beating that left David Warner in critical condition. A 21-year-old woman was arrested earlier Wednesday, but later released and police say they are looking for two other men in connection with the beating. Warner was beaten March 30 when he stepped between an acquaintance and a group of people in a parking lot outside a bar near campus.

Yikes, not such a good start, eh? Mariners lose to Astros 8-3. A new record for the smallest crowd in Safeco Field history was set and oh, yeah, the season has just begun.

Father charged in newborn’s death: Remember that young couple suspected of killing their newborn and leaving the infant’s body in the woods near Ocean Shores? Well, the baby’s father has been charged with murder. KING5 has the story.
