$2M bail set in fatal stabbing in Seattle

SEATTLE — Bail has been set at $2 million for a man accused of fatally stabbing another man and injuring the man’s girlfriend after the couple left a Sounders soccer game in downtown Seattle.

King County prosecutor’s spokesman Dan Donohoe says prosecutors are expected to file charges against 44-year-old Donnell Jackson by Wednesday’s charging deadline.

Jackson is accused in the death of 46-year-old Troy Wolff, head of the English Department at Shoreline Community College, and in the stabbing of Wolff’s companion, Kristin Ito.

Harborview Medical Center reported that Ito had improved by Monday to satisfactory condition.

A police probable cause statement says Jackson randomly stabbed Ito and then stabbed Wolff multiple times when he intervened.

Jackson told police he is schizophrenic and that Wolff was a member of a group trying to kill him.
