Charges expected Tuesday in insulin attack case

(Port Angeles) -- A Port Angeles man is expected to be formally charged by tomorrow after authorities claim he tried to kill a male relative with a dose of insulin.
38-year-old Robbie Davis was arrested late last week and booked into the jail on attempted murder charges.
Port Angeles deputy police chief Brian Smith says the incident happened June 15th at Olympic Medical Center when video showed Davis visited a male relative in the hospital.
Investigators found 57-year old Richard Haynes, who suffers from Down Syndrome, had suffered a rapid decrease in his level of consciousness shortly after Davis' visit.
O-M-C staff found Haynes had very low blood sugar levels, but was not a diabetic. Police say it looks like he had received an injection of insulin -- which in a non-diabetic can cause a rapid decrease in blood sugar and serious injury or death.
Investigators discovered another similar incident in March involving Haynes.
In that case, it was determined that there was insufficient probable cause to show that any one person had injected Haynes with insulin.
The Prosecutorís office is still reviewing the latest case for formal charges.
