Police have DNA evidence in Spokane stabbing

SPOKANE — Spokane police say they have DNA evidence that may identify the man who killed Sharlotte McGill on May 3 as she was walking her dog along the Spokane River.

It may take some time to get the DNA results and investigators are still asking the public for help in identifying the man who jumped out of the bushes and stabbed the 55-year-old woman.

Before she died at the hospital McGill described her attacker as a black man in his 30s with a bad eye.
