A teenage girl who was stabbed Friday night in Redmond has died of her injuries, Redmond police said today.
Cara A. Neil, 17, was stabbed in the chest during a reported fight in Redmond, police said. She was taken to Harborview Medical Center, with injuries police said were life-threatening.
Police responded to reports of a fight Friday night near a business at 15700 Redmond Way. Police detained several people, while also providing first aid to the teen.
Police said all the people involved appeared to know each other and a 25-year-old Redmond man, Daniel J. Haggert, was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder.
Now that Neil has died, the prosecutor’s office plans to upgrade the charge to first-degree murder, according to Dan Donohoe, spokesman for King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg.
