Auburn Man Accused Of Fatally Stabbing Cousin

SEATTLE (AP) — King County prosecutors say a 24-year-old Auburn man fatally stabbed his cousin after verbal slight on Christmas Eve.

Seattlepi.com reports Bradley P. Courville has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of 26-year-old Oliver Quinn. Authorities say Courville stabbed Quinn in the neck with a butcher knife after the insult.

When police officers arrived at the Auburn residence responding to a report of a stabbing, they found Quinn dead.

Prosecutors say Courville ran away from the residence where the stabbing happened, but later emerged from shrubs when officers looked for him.

Courville is also accused of trying to disarm an Auburn police officer while being held. Prosecutors say Courville managed to grab the officer’s gun, but was subdued by other detectives.
