PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) - A Port Angeles man accused of trying to kill a relative with insulin is facing additional charges.

The Peninsula Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1cR0mnv) that 39-year-old Robbie Wayne Davis received the new charges Friday based on letters that prosecutors say he wrote in jail.

Police say Davis injected his step-uncle Richard Haynes with lethal levels of insulin while Haynes was in the hospital.

Haynes had Down syndrome and was not diabetic. A nurse found him with dangerously low blood sugar after a visit from Davis in June 2014.

Haynes died last October from complications of pneumonia.

The prosecuting attorney plants to test DNA found on syringes taken from the hospital room.

The attorney representing Davis says he will provide his own expert to witness the DNA test.
