Pasco murder suspects arrested in Spokane

Criminal charges can change a person's life for years, if not forever. The consequences are even greater for felony crimes such as murder. This was the alleged crime that led two Pasco individuals, a man and a woman, to be arrested recently in Spokane.

According to the Spokane Police Department, the 25-year-old man and 26-year-old woman were arrested for the alleged murder of a man in a Pasco apartment complex on December 4. Acting on a tip, Spokane police caught the pair in a parking lot in central Spokane following information from Pasco police. Both suspects were arrested without incident. The male suspect was booked on charges of murder and the female suspect was arrested on charges of obstructing police. Both were booked into the Spokane County Jail. No additional details about the charges have been released by police.

A criminal suspect will face several immediate and long-term challenges, including posting bail and finding an attorney if charges are pursued by prosecutors. However, any person arrested for a criminal offense is presumed innocent until found guilty by a judge or jury in a court of law. Because a criminal charge carries serious penalties, including the potential for time in prison, defendants can exercise their constitutional rights and secure legal counsel to fight the charges.

A criminal defense team will listen to a defendant's story, assess the prosecution's case and any evidence introduced by police and then work to find a way to help the accused person. At a minimum, the right defense strategy will attempt to ensure that a defendant's rights are protected from unfair prosecution.
