11 years after a rape in Seattle, DNA leads to charges against Illinois man

On March 14, 2007, the then-44-year-old woman was walking near Second Avenue and Pike Street when she was pulled into the back seat of a white Cadillac. The driver dropped the woman and her assailant off in a wooded area near a homeless encampment, where the woman was thrown to the ground and raped.

    11 years after a rape in Seattle, DNA leads to charges against Illinois man
    The victim's rape kit, which contains DNA evidence, was among thousands that sat untested for years in a statewide backlog. It was finally sent for forensic testing last year and the DNA matched that of an Illinois sex offender, prosecutors say.

$12 million a mile: Here’s how bike-lane costs shot sky high in Seattle

He brought up the death of Sher Kung, an attorney and new mother killed by a left-turning box-truck driver at Second and University Street in 2014.

She devised simpler designs for short bike lanes last fall on Pike and Pine streets downtown, for $350,000 each. Those rely on plastic posts and planter boxes, “something we’ve borrowed from Vancouver,” Sparrman said.

    $12 million a mile: Here's how bike-lane costs shot sky high in Seattle
