SEATTLE — A Seattle man has been charged with second-degree murder for allegedly shooting a homeless man and leaving his body in an isolated ravine south of downtown in the Highline area.
The Seattle Times reported Friday (https://goo.gl/TnUSCb ) that 25-year-old Malcolm McGee is being held in lieu of $1 million in connection with the death of 58-year-old Keith “Ice” Ayson.
McGee was charged last month with felony drug possession.
Charges filed in the two cases say the killing may have happened over an $8 marijuana deal witnessed by a King County Sheriff’s deputy the day before Ayson was killed, or an argument stemming from McGee offering to pay Ayson’s girlfriend $5 for sex.
Charging papers say Ayson’s decomposed body was discovered July 11 by a man walking in the 10000 block 17th Place South where the road dead-ends at Highway 599.
