David Campbell in courtThe man accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend and triggering an hours-long manhunt Tuesday morning, before he was arrested Tuesday afternoon, made his first court appearance Wednesday afternoon. David Campbell has been charged with the second degree murder of 37-year-old Jamie Bradshaw.

The Spokane County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the woman killed as Bradshaw on Wednesday.

David M Campbell, stabbing scene, vehicleAccording to court documents, witnesses interviewed by police told investigators that Campbell came to Bradshaw's house Tuesday morning around 10 a.m. and "appeared agitated." Witnesses said Bradshaw went outside to speak with Campbell. About 30 minutes later, a roommate found Bradshaw bleeding on the porch, according to documents.

An acquaintance also told police in the course of the investigation that Campbell had threatened Bradshaw in the past two weeks, court documents say.

After Campbell was arrested around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, officers searched Campbell. They determined, based on surveillance video from Bradshaw's home, that Campbell had changed his clothes between the morning and the time he was arrested, but police did see what looked like blood on his shoes, according to the documents.

Based on interviews with witnesses and the search of Bradshaw, police arrested him on one count of second degree murder. 

Campbell is being held on a $1 million bond Wednesday.
