BURIEN – A 15-year old Burien girl has been arrested by King County Sheriff’s investigators in connection with the stabbing death of a 49-year-old Kent man last Friday (April 4).

Deputies were called to the man’s home on Tuesday to check on him, said sheriff’s spokesman John Urquhart. Deputies found the man dead in his garage, with apparent stab wounds.

Investigators tested fingerprints on a knife found near the man’s body and the print came back to the girl, Urquhart said.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office is investigating the slaying, but is still trying to identify the man.

The girl, who is being held at the King County Youth Service Center, has had “numerous contacts” with police in the past, including an arrest for prostitution, Urquhart said.

She was arrested on Thursday.
