SEATAC, Wash. -- A King County sheriff's spokeswoman says detectives have arrested an injured 21-year-old man in the stabbing death of his sister at an apartment in SeaTac, Wash.

Sgt. Cindi West said Tuesday that the brother called 911 on Monday and said his 24-year-old sister was, in his words, "dead and they had stabbed her." He said he also had been stabbed.

Officers found the man bloody with multiple injuries and found his sister dead. Both appeared to have numerous stab wounds.

West says the brother has been arrested for investigation of murder but will remain at Harborview Medical Center until he is released from treatment.

The spokeswoman says detectives aren't saying what led to the arrest but don't think anyone else was involved.
