PORTLAND, Ore. – A 17-year-old boy who police say killed his 71-year-old great-grandmother will face aggravated murder charges, according to court records.
Police say Joda Cain murdered Jacqueline Bell in her Cedar Mill home Saturday, Oct. 5.
The medical examiner said she died of "blunt force trauma."
Washington County deputies also arrested Cain's cousin, 19-year-old Micus Ward. They were both taken into custody on Interstate 84 in the Columbia River Gorge after a high-speed chase.
According to the Washington County Sheriff's Office, Ward will be charge with a Measure 11 crime.
Cain was a junior at Sunset High School. He was living with his great-grandmother.
He is expected to make a court appearance Wednesday.
The sheriff's office has not released a motive in the case.
