Knives from fatal Kennewick stabbing found

KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) - A police dog found two bloody knives that may have been used to stab a man to death on Christmas Eve in Kennewick.

Officers are still looking for the man suspected of killing 23-year-old Gerardo Villamar in a possible gang fight after a party.

Sgt. Ken Lattin told Tri-City Herald ( the dog found the knives in the back yard of a house where a witness saw a suspect jump the fence.

The knives are being checked at a state crime lab for fingerprints and DNA.

Two other men were injured in the fight. They were arrested along with a third man. All are relatives of Villamar and not suspected of killing him.

Police also have found a car that was apparently used to take Villamar to a hospital.
