Documents: stabbing victim appeared to be asleepAugust 18, 2014 @ 10:32 pm (Updated: 5:25 am - 8/19/14 )
SEATTLE (AP) -- Court documents indicate that witnesses say a 65-year-old man fatally stabbed inside a suburban Seattle fast-food restaurant appeared to be sleeping when he was attacked.
The Seattle Times reports that a 38-year-old homeless man arrested for investigation of first-degree murder is expected to have a bail hearing Tuesday. No charges have been filed.
A Bellevue police spokesman says investigators don't yet know whether the victim and the arrested man knew each other.
Police and medics found the dying victim outside a Burger King on Sunday afternoon. Court papers identify the victim as Jose Arias.
Officers found the man they arrested about a mile and a half from the restaurant. A large knife matching witness descriptions of the one used in the attack was also recovered.
