SPOKANE, Wash. - Court documents released Wednesday indicated the woman killed in Spokane Valley on Tuesday morning had argued with her ex-boyfriend, suspect David Campbell, 37, before being found fatally stabbed on her front porch.

Police arrested Campbell Tuesday afternoon after a search following the stabbing, without incident, and charged him with second degree murder of victim Jamie Bradshaw, 37.

Court documents indicated the Bradshaw's roommates found her face-down on their front porch, bleeding and not breathing. Investigators said she had multiple puncture wounds on her upper body, according to court documents.

The witness said Campbell came to their home and seemed agitated, and the two went outside to talk. The witness told investigators 30 minutes later, the suspect made a U-turn in front of the street and drove away.

According to court documents, an acquaintance of the victim told detectives Bradshaw had told her in the past two weeks Campbell had threatened her life, and she was scared of him.

 

 

Bradshaw had taken out a no-contact order against Campbell at one point, but it expired in 2011.

The order stemmed from an incident in 2010, when he was arrested for breaking the windows of two cars in front of the victim's home. She told police Campbell showed up at her house and assumed she was seeing another man and was jealous.
