Sheriff's Detectives have arrested a 19-year-old Spokane Valley man for the homicide of his pregnant 33-year-old girlfriend Saturday.  According to the Spokane Sheriff's Office, Robbie W. Bishop was booked into the Spokane County Jail on a Second-Degree Murder charge about 2 a.m. Sunday.

Officers were dispatched to the victim's home in the 900 block of North Bowman after a relative called 911 about 7:43 p.m. Saturday and reported that Bishop had called and claimed to have killed his girlfriend.

Once the home was surrounded, officers began attempting to contact the occupants by using both a patrol car public address speaker and a cellular phone.  When they got no response after repeated attempts, they entered the home and found the woman dead on the living room floor.    

Blood evidence on the scene indicated the suspect had fled out the back of the home and officers then searched the victim's sister's home which is the adjacent residence to the south. >>More
