Bus tunnel beating victim requests trial in Edmonds robbery charge

The Seattle Times, an online partner of My Edmonds News, reported Tuesday that a 15-year-old Seattle girl who was beaten in the downtown Seattle bus tunnel has requested a trial in Snohomish County in connection with an unrelated second-degree robbery charge in Edmonds.

The attorney for Aiesha Steward-Baker earlier had said she would plead guilty to the charge filed in connection with the robbery and assault of a Shoreline woman last May in Edmonds, the Times said. But during a hearing Monday in Snohomish County Juvenile Court in Everett, Steward-Baker did not plead guilty to the crime and instead requested a trial.

Steward-Baker and another girl allegedly attacked and robbed Tamie Cox, 50, of Shoreline, on an Edmonds street May 23. Read the full story from the Times here.
