Suspect in ‘92 murder returns to Spokane

A longtime felon and convicted armed robber is back in Spokane on a first-degree murder charge for the 1992 shooting death of a furniture store owner.

 Patrick K. Gibson, who will be 59 in a week, did not contest the $1 million bond request from prosecutors today in Spokane County Superior Court, which Judge Michael Price granted.

Gibson was booked into Spokane County Jail Tuesday at 3:24 p.m. after he was arrested May 4 at his home in Stanwood, Wash., where he was registered as a level 3 sex offender.

Gibson has convictions in Oregon, Nevada and California for kidnapping, rape, robbery and bank robbery.

DNA from a fake beard worn during the Nov. 7, 1992., robbery and shooting at Cole’s Traditions in Oak connected him to the crime.

Prosecutors have sealed the probable cause affidavit that supports a first-degree murder charge against Gibson. Gibson is to be arraigned May 24.
