Sentencing for 'Red Cloud' moved to Feb. 28
Last Friday's scheduled sentencing of confessed murderer Bradley Courville has been continued to 2 p.m. Feb. 28 at the Maleng Regional Justice Center.
"The defense attorney was out sick," said Dan Donohoe, a spokesman for the King County Prosecutor's Office.
Courville, 25, pleaded guilty last month to second-degree murder with a deadly weapon enhancement. Courville, who goes by the nickname "Red Cloud," faces a range of 15 to 23 years in prison.
At about 1:18 a.m. on Dec. 24, 2012, Auburn police found 26-year-old Quinn Oliver dead at a home in the 4000 block of Auburn Way South. A woman at the residence told police that before Oliver died, he had staggered inside and said that "Red Cloud" had stabbed him. Courville told police that the victim called him a name and he reacted by stabbing him multiple times.
Courville also pleaded guilty to third-degree assault for assaulting an Auburn police officer after his arrest.
Prosecutors are expected to recommend that Courville spend 19 years in prison.
