Defendant by the district court in the death of Washington sheriff’s deputy

TACOMA, Wash. – A man arrested in connection with the deadly shooting of a Washington state sheriff’s deputy is due in court.

Frank William Pawul is being held for investigation of first-degree murder in the death of Pierce County deputy Daniel McCartney, who was shot while responding to a home invasion on Sunday.

The 32-year-old Pawul has a criminal history that includes identity theft, burglary and drug possession.

He was arrested on warrants Monday: police have a manhunt.

The prosecutors said that they plan to ask during a hearing on Tuesday for Pawul continued detention pending formal charges.

A second suspect, a 35-year-old Henry Michael Carden, was found dead.

The News Tribune newspaper reports he was sentenced to four years in prison in 2006, after he nearly amputated a man’s arm with a sword.
