Stabbing suspect appears in court

Stabbing suspect Lane Davis appears in Skagit County Superior Court in July.

A Bow-area man is being held for investigation of second-degree murder in the Friday afternoon death of his father.

A probable cause affidavit filed in Skagit County courts accuses Lane Maurice Davis, 33, of fatally stabbing Charles Davis in the chest during a dispute.

According to the affidavit, Lane Davis’ mother called 911 about 3:30 p.m. on Friday to report her husband and son were arguing and that her son was “out of control.”

As deputies were en route to the home on Wharf Street, the mother called 911 again to report that her husband had been stabbed and killed, the affidavit states.

A deputy arrived to find Charles Davis dead on the home’s back porch. Lane Davis was outside the residence, with blood on his body and clothing, according to the affidavit.

He was arrested without incident.

Lane Davis later reportedly told deputies that he and his father had argued and that his father called him a “Nazi,” the affidavit states.

Charles Davis had apparently wanted to kick his son out of the house, according to the affidavit.

Lane Davis is being held on $1 million bail.

The Skagit County Prosecutor’s Office has until 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday to file official charges against him.
