Judge Ellis listens as public defender Natalie Tarantino updates on her clients’ plans to enter a formal guilty plea at a future hearing.

In the latest update to the case, today was the first charge against the suspect.

It was a video indictment with the defendant in prison with his attorneys and Supreme Court Justice Janice Ellis in their courtroom.

At the beginning of the trial, Public Defender Natalie Tarantino told Judge Ellis that the defendant plans to plead guilty to all three counts.

  • First degree aggravated murder with a firearm
  • Second degree illegal possession of firearms
  • Possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture or supply – allegation of a firearm
  • This led to a follow-up hearing scheduled for next Monday, April 25, in the Snohomish County Superior Court.

    Memorial Fund, Rocha
