EVERETT, Wash. - A man arrested in connection with the apparently random drive-by killing of a 15-year-old girl in Lake Stevens has been ordered held on $5 million bail.
27-year-old Boeing employee Erick N. Walker was arrested at his Marysville home Friday in the June 1st shooting of Molly Conley.
Walker appeared in Everett District Court Tuesday, and Judge Tam Bui set his bail amount.
Prosecutors filed charges of second-degree murder, assault and drive-by shooting.
The bullet that killed Conley has not been found, but Snohomish County Prosecutor Mark Roe said that according to ballistics tests, bullets from other drive by shootings in the area that night, including four into occupied houses, matched two of Walker's guns.
Roe said there is overwhelming circumstantial evidence that Walker was responsible for Conley's death. But Walker's attorney said that no evidence has been produced so far connecting Walker to the killing.
