PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Two men are accused of murdering a woman whose body was found outside a southeast Portland apartment.

A grand jury indicted Corey Hill, 21, and Antonio Sanders Jr., 21, Thursday on murder charges for the death of 24-year-old Precious Jackson.

Jackson's body was found in a stairwell early in the morning of Nov. 1. Police were called out to the area of 124th and Powell Court on reports of shots fired at 1:38 a.m.

Witnesses said Jackson was visiting a friend and was shot by someone wearing a mask.

"She cared about everyone, loved everyone," said Jonna Malone, Jackson's cousin. "She won't let nobody walk over her, but she was a caring person."

Homicide detectives said they were able to develop information in the case that led them to Hill and Sanders. No other details were immediately released.

Both suspects will be arraigned Monday on charges of murder and felon in possession of a firearm. They are both in the Multnomah County Jail already on unrelated charges.
