MONTESANO, Grays Harbor County — A 34-year-old man accused of attacking a sheriff’s deputy and stabbing a judge in the Grays Harbor County Courthouse has been charged with attempted murder.

The county Prosecutor’s Office on Wednesday filed charges of attempted second-degree murder against Steven Kravetz in the stabbing and shooting of Deputy Polly Davin and the stabbing of Superior Court Judge David Edwards on March 9.

Kravetz is accused of grabbing the deputy’s gun in a struggle and shooting her with it. The judge has returned to work; the deputy is recovering from a gunshot wound to her shoulder.

The Daily World in Aberdeen reported (is.gd/RBKGa5) that Kravetz is also charged with first-degree assault and disarming a law-enforcement officer.

Authorities have said they recovered the deputy’s pistol from Kravetz’s home when arresting him the next day.
