A 30-year-old King County man has been charged with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend.
The Tacoma News Tribune reports that Scottye Miller had 15 previous domestic violence convictions dating back to 2002, according to the Associated Press.
Prosecutors allege Miller killed 33-year-old Tricia Patricelli in her Auburn apartment Tuesday, two weeks after finishing a prison sentence for harassing and threatening her. She had a no-contact order against Miller.
Miller remained jailed on Friday in lieu of $1 million. He is scheduled to be arraigned Nov. 15.
