Woman fatally stabbed in Cornelius
A woman was fatally stabbed in Cornelius last month, and a suspect has been charged, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.
On Sept. 11, sheriff's deputies from the county as well as officers from the Forest Grove Police Department responded to a domestic disturbance call and found Sonia Bahena unresponsive outside a residence and Jose Rodolpho Torres-Amaro nearby with life-threatening wounds, the Sheriff's Office said in a news release.
When Torres-Amaro was discharged from the hospital Sunday, Oct. 3, he was arrested on a charge of second-degree murder for the death of Bahena.
Torres-Amaro was formally indicted Tuesday, Oct. 5, in Washington County Circuit Court.
Court records show that a Washington County grand jury issued a secret indictment against Torres-Amaro last Wednesday, Sept. 29, leading to his arrest.
