Update: Medford murder suspect captured in Vancouver

Posted: Updated:
MEDFORD, OR (KPTV) -

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office said a man wanted for aggravated murder and robbery was arrested in Vancouver on Saturday morning.

Othon Campos Jr., 41, was being sought in the homicide of 62-year-old Frank Damiano of Ashland, who was found dead in his home Oct. 10.

On Thursday, a grand jury indicted Othon, along with another suspect, Merlin Bound. Bound was arrested Tuesday and is being held without bail.

Detectives sent out word that Campos might have been in Portland or Vancouver because of connections he might have made when he lived in the area in the past.

U.S. Marshals caught up with Campos at an undisclosed location when they took him into custody.

Campos was lodged at the Clark County Jail, and is expected to be extradited back to Jackson County.
