A 17-year-old female has died as a result of her injuries from a stab wound to the chest she received July 18.

At 10:50 p.m. that night, Redmond police responded to reports of a fight near a business at 15700 Redmond Way. Officers and fire personnel arrived, provided first aid to the victim, Cara Neil and arrested a 25-year-old Daniel J. Haggart. The suspect and victim were acquaintances and residents of Redmond. Haggart remains held at King County Jail on charges of attempted murder.
