Man arrested in sister's stabbing death

by: KIRO 7 STAFF Updated:

A 21-year-old man was arrested Tuesday for the stabbing death of his younger sister.

Deputies were called about 10:40 a.m. Monday to the Skyview Apartments in the 3200 block of South 180th Street.

The suspect, who called 911 saying “they had stabbed her,” also was taken to Harborview Medical Center after deputies arrived at the Sea-Tac apartment and also found him with stab wounds.

The suspect remains in Harborview Medical Center and is expected to be booked into King County Jail after being released.

"When police arrived they found the man bloody with multiple injuries and found his sister dead inside the apartment," Sgt. Cindi West said in a statement. "Both appeared to have been stabbed numerous times."

Detectives did not say specifically what led to the arrest, but said there are no outstanding suspects. Further details are expected when the suspect has a bail hearing a day after he's booked into King County Jail.
