Alleged insulin attacker due back in court Friday
August 28th, 2014 - 5:56am
(Port Angeles) – Arraignment is set for tomorrow for a Port Angeles man accused of trying to kill a relative using an insulin shot.
The court is also expected to review a mental health report on 39-year-old Robbie Davis.
Davis has been charged with attempted murder and assault in an alleged insulin attack on a relative at Olympic Medical Center.
Investigators say the incident happened June 15th at Olympic Medical Center when video showed Davis visited his uncle in the hospital.
57-year old Richard Haynes, who suffers from Down's Syndrome, 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 looked like he had received an injection of insulin -- which in a non-diabetic can cause a rapid decrease in blood sugar and lead to death.
Davis lives with Haynes and other family members near Gales Addition in east Port Angeles.
Davis is being held on $25-thousand dollars bail.
Investigators say they looked into another similar incident involving Haynes earlier this spring in which it appeared he may have been administered a large dose of insulin.
A mental health evaluation was ordered for Davis soon after charges were filed in the case last month.
Davis' arraignment is set for tomorrow morning in Clallam County Superior Court.
