A 21-year-old man who stabbed his stepfather multiple times which led to his death and is associated in a series of major crimes had his bail set at $1 million during an appearance in Clark County Superior Court.
Miccah J. McDowell, 21, appeared in court on Monday morning wearing a suicide-prevention smock.
McDowell is currently facing charges of first-degree attempted murder, first-degree robbery, and first-degree assault.
The attempted murder charge originates from claims that two men stabbed Robert “Bob” Davis at his home at 6704 N.W. 192nd St.
As indicated by a probable cause affidavit, McDowell was with the two men and took part in robbing the home.
The affidavit identifies McDowell as Bob Davis’ step-grandson.
Here’s the story of the investigation as reported by a Clark County deputy:
Upon getting to Bob Davis’ home around 4 p.m., the deputy saw a car pulverized by fire in the driveway of a large rural home. As indicated by the probable cause affidavit, the deputy learned the homeowner was medevaced to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in critical condition.
Bob’s wife, Karen Davis disclosed to the deputy she left the house around noon and returned several hours later to discover the unknown vehicle burning on the property.
She went inside the home with a neighbor who found Bob Davis in the master bedroom shower, severely injured. When Karen Davis went into the bathroom, Bob Davis tried to tell her “Miccah was involved,” the affidavit says.
Medics responded and treated Bob Davis while he was still inside the bathroom; they guided the witnesses to get outside as they realized gasoline had been poured all through the house and there were flames in the garage.
Detectives determined Bob Davis’ GMC Yukon was gone and few rooms seemed to be ransacked. Two safes in the home had been opened, and several firearms and other valuables were missing, according to the affidavit.
The affidavit also stated that the burnt Honda Accord in the driveway returned a registration with a report of sale to McDowell, according to the affidavit.
While Karen Davis waited for news about her husband’s medical treatment, McDowell called and texted her cellphone. She gave the phone to deputies, who then persuaded the young man to meet them at a Ridgefield Chevron.
Two detectives waited at the gas station for McDowell, and they saw him approaching in a sedan before he turned around and tossed a bag out the window while driving away, according to the affidavit. The bag contained a set of keys to Bob Davis’ GMC.
