The Seattle Times: Shoreline man charged with premeditated first-degree murder

Thursday, March 31, 2022

The Seattle Times has published a follow-up to the story about the Shoreline resident who brutally murdered his girlfriend.

King County prosecutors say a 41-year-old Shoreline man lured a woman to his apartment Saturday night with the intention of killing her and fatally attacked her with a hatchet, bongo drums and bolt cutters.

Tyrone Wells was charged Wednesday with premeditated first-degree murder, accused of killing Randee Rios, 32, who suffered multiple blunt- and sharp-force injuries to her head early Sunday, charging papers say.

In addition to a deadly-weapon enhancement, the charges allege the aggravating factor that Wells’ conduct manifested deliberate cruelty to Rios, which if proven, could justify a sentence above the standard sentencing range.

The crime happened in his apartment on Linden Ave N.
