Man Charged With Murder After Aunt Found Dead Near Bellevue

SEATTLE (AP) — A suburban Bellevue man accused of killing the 72-year-old aunt he lived with has been charged with second-degree murder.

King County prosecutors said Wednesday in court documents that 53-year-old Mark Irwin was wearing blood-covered pants and had scratches on his arms Monday when Bellevue police found him in his aunt’s car a few hours after her body was discovered.

Prosecutors say Barbara Irwin’s body was found Sunday evening at her apartment.

Mark Irwin is held on $2 million bail.
