BREMERTON — Kitsap County prosecutors are charging a 29-year-old Bremerton man with bludgeoning his stepfather to death.
The Kitsap Sun reports Jason Anthony Salas was charged with first-degree murder Thursday and is being held on a $2 million bail in the killing of Gillbert Sayama Sablan.
Charging papers say Salas killed Sablan with a crowbar in front of five children inside their home. Sablan then took the children to a relative’s home and said he’d done “something wrong.” Those family members called police.
Detectives say Sablan didn’t explain his motive other than saying Wednesday was a “good day” to kill his stepfather, with whom he never got along.
It was the first homicide in Bremerton since February 2012, The Kitsap Sun reports.
