Kravetz charged with attempted murder


New charges filed this morning accuse Steven D. Kravetz of attempted murder and assault in the stabbing of a Grays Harbor Superior Court judge and shooting of a Sheriff’s deputy at the county courthouse last month.

The Grays Harbor Prosecutor’s Office filed new charges against Kravetz this morning in Grays Harbor Superior Court for the alleged stabbing of Judge David Edwards and the shooting of Deputy Polly Davin with her own gun during a frantic confrontation at the county courthouse on March 9.

Kravetz, 34, now faces two counts each of attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault against Edwards and Davin. He is also charged with disarming a law enforcement officer for allegedly taking Davin’s handgun during the struggle.

Authorities arrested Kravetz the next day after a massive manhunt. They reportedly recovered Davin’s pistol from his home. Edwards suffered stab wounds to his neck and has returned to work. Davin suffered a gunshot wound to her shoulder and continues to recover.
