The brother of a teenager who was killed by her ex-boyfriend in the shooting also sued the gunman, his parents and the store where the murder weapon was purchased.
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — A judge has dismissed a set of defendants from a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the brother of one of three 19-year-old friends murdered at a Washington house party.
The Daily Herald reports Snohomish County Superior Court Judge Millie Judge granted a motion to end the part of the case seeking damages from Karl and Victoria Bratvold, the family who owned the Mukilteo home where the shootings happened in 2016.
The parents, whose son, Tristan, hosted the party, weren’t there that night.
The complaint was filed in October by David Bui, representing for the estate of his sister, Anna Bui.
