Man pleads guilty to killing cousin in Auburn on Christmas Eve

A man pleaded guilty yesterday to fatally stabbing his cousin last Christmas Eve in Auburn, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

Bradley Courville pleaded guilty to second-degree murder with a deadly-weapon enhancement. He also pleaded guilty to third-degree assault for assaulting an Auburn police officer.

The 25-year-old Courville, who goes by the nickname “Red Cloud,” faces a range of 15 to 23 years in prison when he is sentenced on Jan. 10.

Around 1:18 a.m. Dec. 24, Auburn police found the victim, Quinn Oliver, 26, dead at a home in the 4000 block of Auburn Way South. A woman at the residence told officers that before Oliver died, he staggered inside and said that “Red Cloud” had stabbed him.

Soon after the woman explained this to police, Courville emerged from some nearby bushes and identified himself to officers, according to charging documents.

When talking with police, Courville said he was experiencing a “spiritual” moment before the slaying and grabbed a butcher knife, charges said. Courville told officers that Oliver called him a name and he reacted by stabbing the man in the neck. Courville said that after the stabbing he hid in the bushes.
