SPOKANE VALLEY — The man killed by sheriff’s deputies Wednesday in Spokane Valley had returned to the home where he was accused of stabbing his girlfriend the night before.

Sheriff’s Deputy Craig Chamberlin told The Spokesman-Review that the man was homicidal and suicidal.

Deputies who had interviewed the woman were outside her home when the man drove by. After a two-block chase he circled back on foot and was shot by officers in the woman’s yard.
