Man indicted in killing of Columbia County health worker

Posted: Updated:

A grand jury has handed up a murder indictment against a man released from the Oregon state mental hospital and accused of killing a woman making a routine medicine delivery to his apartment.

The district attorney's office in Columbia County announced the indictment Friday. It was dated Thursday.

The 30-year-old suspect, Brent Redd, remained in the hospital with a neck wound. Authorities say he won't appear in court until he's released.

He's accused of stabbing Jennifer Warren, who was filling in Sunday on a weekend shift for another worker.

Redd pleaded guilty except for insanity in 2007 when he was accused of trying to kill his mother. In 2009, a review board found him too dangerous for release to a community corrections program,
but in the next year approved it.
