Fatal stabbing suspect identified

Spokane County Jail records show that 38-year-old Corey M. Burnam was booked into jail Saturday morning on suspicion of aggravated first-degree domestic violence murder.

Burman is accused of stabbing a 29-year-old woman to death in the 600 block of South Howe just before 7 p.m. Friday.

Spokane Valley deputies were called to the location for a domestic violence call and found the woman unresponsive and bleeding from stab wounds, said Deputy Mark Gregory. She died at the scene despite treatment efforts by deputies and Spokane Valley Fire Department medics.

Burman was tracked by a police K9 to where he was hiding nearby under a trailer. He refused to cooperate and was bitten by the dog before being arrested, Gregory said. Burman was taken to a local hospital for treatment before being booked into jail.

The woman will be identified by the medical examiner after an autopsy.
