Suspect due in court in death of Washington sheriff's deputy

Posted: Updated:

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A man arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of a Washington state sheriff's deputy is due in court.

Frank William Pawul is being held for investigation of first-degree murder in the death of Pierce County deputy Daniel McCartney, who was shot while responding to a home invasion Sunday.

The 32-year-old Pawul has a criminal record that includes identity theft, residential burglary and drug possession.

He was arrested on unrelated warrants Monday as police conducted a manhunt.

Prosecutors said they planned to ask during a court hearing Tuesday for Pawul's continued detention pending formal charges.

A second suspect, 35-year-old Henry Michael Carden, was found dead.

The News Tribune newspaper reports he was sentenced to four years in prison in 2006 after he nearly severed a man's arm with a sword.
