Man accused of stabbing wife: $1 million bail

Spokane residents may be intrigued to hear that a Monroe man accused of stabbing his wife on May 31st is currently being held on $1 million bail. The man from Monroe was arrested on domestic violence charges after he supposedly stabbed his wife with a butcher knife.

According to court records, the man's wife, 34, had filed a protective order against him on May 22nd. Sources say that the woman was trying to serve her husband with the order when he stabbed her. The incident occurred at around 7 p.m. outside of the Monroe man's workplace on N. Lewis Street in Monroe. Reportedly, people passing by had to pull the man away from his wife after he stabbed her multiple times in the arms, abdomen, and chest.

The 34-year-old woman is currently on life support at a trauma center in Seattle. Police reported that when they came to the scene of the stabbing, the 32-year-old Monroe man was holding the knife to his own throat and was threatening to take his own life. According to police, the man had to be controlled with an electric stun gun before his arrest. Due to the fact that officers had to use lethal force to make the arrest, the case is currently being investigated by the Snohomish County Multiple Agency Response Team.

Those who have been arrested on domestic violence charges often face serious consequences. Domestic violence charges can result in a criminal record and other losses. Individuals who are involved in any domestic violence charges may want to consider getting in touch with a spousal abuse attorney. Doing so could greatly improving one's chances of having a fair chance at overcoming such charges.
