A man suspected in the fatal stabbing of a young man outside a convenience store has had bail set at $1 million while prosecutors decide on charges.
The News Tribune reports 20-year-old Tyler Jacob Wallace was arrested Monday for investigation of second-degree murder in the stabbing of 18-year-old Edward Anthony Pilot II in the Fredrickson area.
Pierce County deputy prosecutor Jared Ausserer asked the court to hold Wallace with bail and said investigators are determining whether self-defense was involved.
The sheriff's office says a fight was reported before midnight Monday and that deputies found Pilot on the ground near a plastic knife handle.
