Detectives have forwarded charges to the Spokane County Prosecutor's Office that Donna Perry face first-degree murder charges for three unsolved homicides from 1990.
Detectives from the Spokane Police Department and Spokane County Sheriff's Office worked together to crack the unsolved murders of Yolanda Sapp, Nickie Lowe and Kathlene Brisbois.
Perry, 61, was arrested in Spokane last year on federal firearms charges. When he was arrested his DNA was collected and detectives found a match on DNA evidence submitted in the May 15, 1990 killing of Brisbois.
"This name we hadn't associated with these events before. Now that we have gone through all the time and things, we do see his name in there one or two places, but never a player or suspect in this incident," Lyle Johnston, a detective with the Major Crimes Unit, said.
