Murder Suspects Stolen Vehicle Found in Spokane Valley
Murder suspects, James Patrick Mancuso, age 32, and Ashley Nicoli Ford, age 27, are still at large, though the search has extended to Spokane Valley.
The pair eluded police after fleeing a northern Idaho traffic stop. They abandoned their car and police believe they stole a 1991 white extended cab Toyota truck which was found on Sunday in Spokane Valley, Washington.
Police say Mancuso is a suspect in the March 10 stabbing death of Robert Stevens in Nampa. The stabbing is thought to have happened when police said the two men got into an argument in front of a house. Investigators said the fight escalated and one of the men stabbed the other in the abdomen.
Mancuso faces a charge of 2nd degree murder, and an arrest warrant for Ford is for accessory to second degree murder.
Officials have released the following description of the suspects: James Patrick Mancuso, born January 31, 1984, height 6’ 00”, 180 pounds, brown hair, blue eyes. Ashley Nicoli Ford, born May 24, 1988, height 5’ 09”, 150 pounds, blond hair, hazel eyes.
Records show that Mr. Mancuso had a previous sentencing in Ada County for aggravated battery.
Mancuso and Ford are still at large. The United States Marshall’s Office continues to look for them, and are following up on recent information.
They are still considered armed and dangerous and it is recommended that you call 911 if you have any information.
