Husband accused of murder remains in hospital

A man accused of killing his wife remains under guard at a downtown Spokane hospital.

Jeffrey N. Canino, 46, is on the Spokane County Superior Court first appearance docket this afternoon one one count of first-degree murder but likely won't make the appearance, said Spokane County sheriff's Sgt. Dave Reagan.

Canino is in a downtown hospital, where he is being treated for what police characterize as self-inflicted knife wounds.

The sheriff's office said Wednesday that he is in critical condition and on a ventilator in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

In a news release, Sgt. Bill Beeman said probable cause to arrest Canino was based on interviews and evidence collected at the scene of the homicide, 4518 E. Woodglen in Mead.
