SEATTLE -- The man accused of fatally stabbing a community college professor and injuring his girlfriend as the couple left a Seattle Sounders soccer game has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and attempted murder.
The Seattle Times reported that Donnell Jackson did not speak during his brief arraignment Monday.
The 44-year-old man is being held on $2 million bail following the Sept. 13 stabbing of Troy Wolff, the head of the English Department at Shoreline Community College, and the wounding of Kristin Ito.
Police said the two were randomly attacked in Pioneer Square as they left the game. According to court papers, Jackson says he is schizophrenic and homeless.
At an earlier hearing, public defender Maureen McKee said Jackson "suffers from an extreme mental illness."
