16 year old suspect charged as adult in stabbing of Jon Favro
Prosecutors say the 16-year-old Hoquiam boy accused of fatally stabbing 22 year old Jon Favro of Aberdeen has been charged with second-degree murder as an adult. Bail was set at $500,000 today.
The teen is accused of stabbing Favro early Saturday in Hoquiam after an argument about a woman. According to Hoquiam Police, the stabbing occured at an apartment complex near 28th St and Bay Avenue in Hoquiam. Favro then got into his 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt before hitting a rock embankment. Officers found a knife and sheath near the car and discovered the 22 year old’s body in a yard.
Hoquiam Police said that the mother of the 16 year old suspect told officers that she had received a call from her son saying he was “going to do something terrible”. A woman identifying herself as the mother of the suspect says that neither the call to her nor to the police occurred. When officers found the 16 year old Hoquiam boy, he admitted to stabbing Favro.
Favro was a 2008 graduate of Aberdeen High School and worked as a corrections officer at Washington Corrections Center in Shelton.
The investigation is ongoing.
