A 21-year-old man was arrested in connection with the stabbing death of his older sister at a SeaTac apartment on Monday, a King County Sheriff’s news release said.
The sister was identified by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office as Medina Negato, 24.
The man had called police Monday morning and told them his sister was “dead and they had stabbed her,” the release said. When SeaTac police and King County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the Skyview apartment in the 3200 block of South 180th Street, they found him bleeding, and he told them he had also been stabbed, the release said.
The man will remain at Harborview Medical Center until he is released from treatment, at which point he will be booked into the King County Jail.
When police arrived they found the man bloody with multiple injuries and his sister dead inside the apartment, the release said. Both appeared to have been stabbed numerous times.
The news release did not say what evidence led them to arrest the brother, but it said investigators do not believe there are any outstanding suspects.

Bystanders pulled a drowning 19-year-old from Green River near Ravensdale Monday afternoon, according to Sgt. Cindi West of the King County Sheriff’s Department. He was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.
A father and son had been wading in calm eddies near the shore, but the son ended up swimming too close to mild rapids in the middle of the river, West said. As the current started taking him away, the father tried to save him but had to let go or he, too, could have drowned.
Further downstream another father and son were able to dive 10 feet into the river to pull the son out and perform CPR. He did not regain consciousness. Monday night, he was in very critical condition at Harborview, West said.
West said that many swimmers don’t realize that the river’s freshly snow-melted water is so cold year-round that a swimmer’s body will often concentrate its heat and circulation toward the torso, leaving arms and legs less effective while swimming. The warmest Green River’s water gets near the mountains is usually about 45 degrees, she said.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s 80, 90, 100 degrees outside, that water is cold,” West said. “This time of year, it’s unfortunate that we have these kinds of accidents.”
