Family of accused machete man has storied history

The man accused of a machete attack in Spokane last week is a member of a local family with a storied history.

Read a story about Douglas W. Harmon's relation to a man shot and killed by police after shooting up a church at Gonzaga University in 1971 here.

In this story on the machete attack, the victim says Harmon was asking which one of the girls was Nadine. Harmon has an older sister named Nadine.

Harmon's father, E. Glenn Harmon, died in 1994 but resurfaced more than a decade later when a Kootenai County prosecutor claimed to have spoken with him in 2004.

Bill Douglas said a court reporter misquoted him in a story you can read here.
