Bowen is being investigated for second-degree murder. He was released from the Snohomish County Jail on Saturday afternoon on $100,000 bail.
Police found a 45-year-old man critically wounded in Bowen’s home about 2 a.m. Saturday in the 2600 block of Harrison Avenue, Everett police Sgt. Boyd Bryant said.
