The suspect in the stabbing death of a Port Angeles teen-ager is scheduled to enter a plea this afternoon (Friday) in U.S. District Court in Tacoma.
A grand jury has returned a second-degree murder indictment against Christopher Paul Hawk, 21. He’s accused of killing Cordell Singleton, 18, early March 17 at a home on the Lower Elwha Klallam reservation west of Port Angeles.
Hawk is being held at the federal detention center in SeaTac. Lawyers may also discuss his conditions for release, said Lawrence Lincoln, spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle.FBI investigators believe Hawk fatally wounded Singleton with a large knife in an unprovoked attack, according to charging documents.
