3rd suspect arraigned in bat attack

A third suspect in a baseball bat attack at a northwest Spokane home was arraigned Tuesday in Spokane County Superior Court.

Eric T. Borders, 40, pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary for his alleged involvement in an attack at 4907 N. Lincoln St. Nov. 13.

Police believe Borders and Michelle Lee Blair, 39, entered the home and Blair struck the victim with the butt end of the bat several times while demanding his debit card, according to court documents.

Police arrested suspect Andrew Emil Williamson, 38, outside the home after learning he had a Washington Department of Corrections warrant. They booked him on a first-degree robbery charge after finding him with items belonging to the victim, according to court documents.

The three suspects are in the Spokane County Jail.
