More charged in home invasion robbery

A 22-year-old woman is accused of helping three men charged with a home invasion robbery in Spokane Valley last month.

Vatsana Muongkhoth was arraigned Tuesday in Spokane County Superior Court on charges of conspiracy to commit first-degree burglary, first-degree unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver (cocaine) and first-degree rendering criminal assistance.

Muongkhoth has been in Spokane County Jail since Nov. 18 when she was arrested on a warrant during a traffic stop just about an hour after a home invasion robbery at East Mansfield Avenue.

Also charged in the home invasion robbery is Artez L. Woodard, 24; Darius D. Toussiant, 18; and Glen A. Akers, 19.

Woodard was also arraigned Tuesday, pleading not guilty to first-degree burglary, first-degree robbery and first-degree conspiracy to commit burglary. His ex-girlfriend is the alleged victim.

Police think Toussiant and Akers were the masked gunmen who broke into Woodard's ex-girlfriend apartment. All four were in the car during the traffic stop; Akers ran and was arrested after a police standoff the next day.
