SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane County Sheriff's Office says they have arrested a man in connection to an early November double homicide in Spokane Valley. 

Christopher B. Ramirez, the nephew of homicide victims Juan Gallegos-Rodriguez and Arturo Gallegos, made his first appearance before a judge Wednesday afternoon. 

Court documents state Gallegos wrote in his diary about his nephew showing up at his home on July 5 and threatening to kill him with a knife because Ramirez believe Gallegos was involved with his girlfriend. 

According to the Spokane County Jail inmate roster, Ramirez has been in jail since November 2, 2014, one day after the double homicide, on an unrelated warrant. He was then charged with assault on November 5, for the incident described in Gallegos' diary. Ramirez is an 8 time convicted felon. 

On Tuesday, prosecutors added charges for two counts of first-degree murder and unlawful possession of a firearm.
