UW Student Injured In Assault Dies, Boyfriend Jailed

SEATTLE (AP) — Officials say a 22-year-old woman who attended University of Washington has died and her boyfriend is in jail on $1 million bail.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg says the woman died Tuesday afternoon at the hospital.

Police say officers responded to a disturbance call Sunday in the University District area of Seattle. When they arrived, police say they heard people arguing, looked through a window and saw a man assaulting a woman.

Officers say they forced open the door and pulled a 21-year-old man off the victim.

Officers performed CPR on the woman until medics arrived and took her to the hospital.

The Seattle Times reports the suspect, who is also a UW student, is now facing homicide charges, which are expected Wednesday.
