SPOKANE, Wash. - The man arrested for a North Spokane County murder Tuesday evening was moved out of the Intensive Care Unit and his condition upgraded to "satisfactory," a hospital spokesman reported.

Authorities carry bags of evidence out of the home Tuesday

Deputies were called to the couple's home in the 4500 block of E. Woodglen about 6:30 a.m. by their 12-year-old son who dialed 911. 

In the first 911 call, a woman could be heard screaming for help, but that call was disconnected before an address was given.

As deputies were headed to the home, a second call came in and again the woman could be heard screaming.

When they arrived, deputies found Michelle had died and Jeffrey suffering from what they believe was self-inflected knife wounds.  The boy suffered cuts on his hands from the kitchen knife used in the assault.

Jeffrey Canino was originally listed in critical condition, but had improved enough by Tuesday evening to be placed under arrest and under guard.

An account benefiting the couple's child has been set up at the STCU on W. Nora under his uncle's name, Michael Mettler.
