Detectives arrest woman for stabbing family member

Spokane Valley Deputies and Major Crimes Detectives are investigating a stabbing that occurred during a fight between two family members Sunday evening.

Around 10:45 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to an apartment in the 12100 block of E. Alki for a reported stabbing.

Arriving deputies learned that the adult victim and the suspect, 27-year-old Amanda R. Kayioni, began arguing in the kitchen. The two then began hitting each other with frying pans. A third family member took the pans away, but Kayioni grabbed a knife and began stabbing the victim in the upper arm and shoulder area.

The third family member was able to disarm Kayioni. The victim was transported to a local hospital where she received treatment for non-life threatening injuries.

Kayioni was arrested at the scene. She was booked into the Spokane County Jail for first degree domestic violence assault.

Major Crimes Detectives were called to investigate the incident.
