Fight at Airway Heights apartment complex leaves one person dead

The Spokane area is usually a peaceful and beautiful place. But, occasionally, a person can get into a disagreement with someone else. When these disagreements become heated or misunderstandings occur, a felony may result, leading to serious consequences for the defendant.

Recently, a violent fight occurred at an apartment complex in Airway Heights. The fight occurred between two men in the parking lot of the Copper Landing apartments. Witnesses called police after they heard a lot of yelling and commotion, and people running from the scene where the fight occurred between the men using baseball bats. When police arrived, they found one man dead at the scene and a second was transported to a local hospital. Two men have been charged with 2nd degree murder and are being held at the Spokane County jail.

Murder is the ultimate crime in Washington. There is little sympathy for those who are convicted of murder from either law enforcement officials or the public. A person who is charged with murder needs a solid criminal defense strategy. It is important to understand the serious nature of these charges and aggressively work to plan a defense. Defendants may need to tell their side of the story and challenge the prosecution's version of what happened.

Those who are facing murder charges in Washington know how serious this situation is. A murder conviction can bring a lifetime in prison along with job loss and family stress. Understand the serious consequences a murder conviction and work hard to make sure your story is heard in court.
