A 34-year-old woman allegedly stabbed several times by her estranged husband in Monroe last month has died.
The woman initially survived the May 24 attack in a downtown Monroe parking lot on the 100 block of North Lewis Street, but the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said today she died at Harborview Medical Center on Sunday. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office has not released her name.
Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Shari Ireton says the woman’s 32-year-old estranged husband is being held in Snohomish County Jail on suspicion of first-degree murder. Officers found the man near the stabbing scene wielding a knife the night of May 24. He had to be subdued with Tasers to be arrested, Ireton said.
The suspect may face additional charges after the Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office reviews the case.
