White Center murder-case followups: 1 defendant on trial; 1 defendant committed

We’ve been tracking two White Center murder cases for some months now, and have updates on both:

DECEMBER 2011 BAKERY MURDER: Trial is now under way in King County Superior Court for Cu Van Truong, the man charged on December 30, 2011, with murdering Jason Saechao days earlier at Seattle Roll Bakery in downtown White Center. Prosecutors allege Truong shot Saechao to death in a spat involving a necklace and a woman. King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office spokesperson Dan Donohoe told WCN the case could go to closing arguments within the next week or so.

NOVEMBER 2012 STABBING: Brodie Lamb, charged last November with stabbing his 69-year-old mother Margaret Ryan to death at her White Center apartment, is at Western State Hospital, according to court records. After being found incompetent to stand trial, he was committed to Western State in early April for a 90-day attempt to restore competency through treatment. A hearing is scheduled in early July to see where the case stands.
