Update: Where Does The Sharlotte McGill Murder Case Stand?

SPOKANE, Wash. -

It was one of the most shocking stories of 2012; the seemingly random murder of Sharlotte McGill, 55, just outside her apartment in East Spokane.

She was stabbed to death while walking her dog along a narrow trail on the morning of May 3, 2012, but it would take four months for police to make an arrest. As it turns out, the man police say is responsible lived just a few doors down from McGill in the same apartment complex. Avondre Graham – then 17-years-old – was arrested in September 2012, after police say he attacked two other women along the Centennial Trial.

But after his first court appearance, we haven't heard much.

It turns out a mental health evaluation for sanity and competency was ordered months ago – but still had not been done as of July. Graham was scheduled to have a court hearing in June to discuss the results of the evaluation – but it wasn't done. The appearance was moved back a month to July – but the evaluation still wasn't completed.

He's now set to have a stay hearing on August 30th – but it, too, may be delayed.

KHQ reached out to the Spokane County Prosecutors office to see if these delays are normal in a case of this magnitude, but our calls were not returned.

Graham is facing charges of 2nd degree murder, 3rd degree assault, 1st degree robbery and attempted 1st degree assault. He's being held on $1,000,000 bail.

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.
