Woman killed, man in critical condition after double stabbing in Lacey

The Associated Press

LACEY — Authorities in Thurston County have arrested a man they believe is responsible for fatally stabbing one woman and gravely injuring another man in the Lacey area.

The Olympian reports that a 67-year-old man who uses a wheelchair was found stabbed in the neck in his home before 3 p.m. Monday. While police were investigating, they discovered a second stabbing victim at another location just before 5 p.m.

Thurston County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Brady says the man in the wheelchair was in critical condition at Providence St. Peter Hospital.

Brady said deputies were called to the first scene after a woman went to the man’s home to return a lost dog she believed might belong to the owner. She saw the man lying on the ground with what appeared to be a stab wound to the neck.

The man in custody is reportedly the son of the female victim.
