A September 3rd arraignment is now set for Tyrone Washington.

Washington is charged with first degree murder in the stabbing death of Justina Marie Smith of Northwood.

Smith died on August 5th after prosecutors say she was stabbed repeatedly by Washington after the two met at Swensrud Park in Northwood.

Washington was scheduled to be in court Monday afternoon for a preliminary hearing, but that was canceled after attorneys filed the necessary information with the court earlier that morning.

The arraignment will take place at 9:30 a.m. on the 3rd.

Washington remains in the Worth County Jail under a cash only bond of a half million dollars.
