Monday Memo: Home intruder stabbed to death … Big week for Kings bid

Intruder stabbed to death at North Bend home: A man broke into a home in North Bend early this morning and was stabbed to death by one of the residents, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. There was a struggle between the homeowner and the intruder, and the homeowner’s wife got involved, too. Along with the homeowner and his wife, a baby and mother-in-law were inside the home at the time of the break-in.

The story that will live on forever: That being the fight over ownership of the Sacramento Kings. Sports reporter Bob Condotta says what happens today and tomorrow could be critical to what the NBA’s Board of Governors does Wednesday when it meets to  finally settle (we hope) the battle between Seattle and Sacramento for the team. The league’s finance and relocation committee is scheduled to hold a conference call today to begin hashing out the latest developments in the saga, including Chris Hansen’s boost of the team’s value to $625 million.
