Suspect charged in Bellevue stabbing deaths

Posted: Updated:

The Bellevue man suspected of killing his three neighbors Sunday on Beech Bend Drive has been formally charged with criminal homicide.

Craig Allen Garber, 41, is accused of stabbing Michelle Pinkowski, 48, her son, Jonathan Culpepper, 14, and her mother, Marylea Jordan, 71, inside the family's home early Sunday.

Garber is also believed to have stabbed himself just before police arrived to the scene. He was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he remains under police supervision in stable condition.

He faces three counts of criminal homicide and will be jailed once his medical condition allows, police said.

Several funds have been established to aid Pinkowski's 9-year-old daughter, who witnessed her grandmother's death before running to a neighbor for help.

A candlelight vigil for the victims is set for Saturday from 7-9 p.m. at Red Caboose Park, 656 Colice Jeanne Rd.
