Murder Charges Filed in Yahne Homicide
The Benton County Prosecutor's Office charges Robert McCorkindale with first degree murder in the death of Preston Yahne of Prosser.
The investigation in Yahne's death continues including possible involvement by McCorkindale's girlfriend, Laura Bancroft.
At this time, however, prosecutors and investigators say there isn't enough information or evidence to decide whether Bancroft should face formal charges.
Court records indicate McCorkindale admitted to investigators that he stabbed Yahne, ran over him with a car, then set the car on fire as part of a drug deal gone bad.
