SMOKEY POINT — Snohomish County sheriff’s detectives were investigating the killing of a young woman in Smokey Point on Friday.

A person called 911 around 9:30 a.m. to report that their friend said he had killed his girlfriend at a home in the 400 block of 200th Street NW, sheriff’s Lt. Rebecca Lewis said.

Deputies arrived at the house and found a woman, 23, dead. She had “obvious signs of trauma,” Lewis said. The lieutenant would not release any further details about the injuries, or if any weapons were used.

Kirkland police arrested a suspect, a 25-year-old man, later on Friday without further incident.
