A teenager accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend will appear in court today on one count of second-degree murder.
Robbie W. Bishop, 19, has been in Spokane County Jail since Saturday night after police arrested him a couple blocks from the home he was staying at with his 33-year-old girlfriend, Robin Anderson.
Police responded to that home, located in the 900 block of North Bowman, after a relative called 911 and Bishop had called "and claimed to have killed his girlfriend," according to a news release prepared by Sgt. Dave Reagan.
Bishop is scheduled to appear in Judge Sam Cozza's courtroom via video at 1:30 p.m.
Also scheduled to appear is Derrick Billy, 25.
Billy faces charges of first-degree rape and first-degree burglary after a police dog tracked him in early Saturday.
A woman in the 1400 block of East Rowan called police about a burglary about 12:17 a.m. When officers arrived, she said the burglar had raped her, police said.
Billy was arrested in an alley near North Avenue and Perry Street about 12:30 a.m.
Billy was sentenced to two years probation and credited for 10 days spent in jail after being convicted of violating a protection order in November, according to newspaper archives.
As for Bishop, newspaper archrives show he was arrested in June on suspicion of arson in a fire that month that caused an estimated $2,500 damage to Adams Elementary School, 14707 E. Eighth Ave. Spokane Valley Fire Department spokesman Bill Clifford said Bishop was identified through witness reports and surveillance videos.
