PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Portland police arrested multiple suspects Wednesday night who are believed to be involved in the murder of a man in Clark County in 2015.

Six people are now facing charges for the homicide of 56-year-old Robert Huggins. Two suspects were already in custody on unrelated charges.  

Detectives said Huggins was once affiliated with the motorcycle gang the Gypsy Jokers and his death was directly linked to that affiliation. Detectives also said the suspects in this case are in some way associated to each other through outlaw motorcycle gangs. 

Portland police arrested Mark Dencklau, 56; Earl Fisher Jr., 46; Ronald Thompson, 51; and Kendra Castle, 43.

Dencklau and Fisher are facing charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and conspiracy to commit kidnapping. 

Thompson and Castle were booked into the Multnomah County Jail on charges of hindering prosecution. 

Police said two others involved in the case were already in jail. Tiler Pribbernow, 34, was in the Multnomah County Jail on charges including possession of burglary tools, felon in possession of a firearm and possession of methamphetamine. He is now facing additional charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and conspiracy to commit kidnapping.

Malachi Watkins, 32, is also now facing murder and kidnapping charges. He was already in custody at the Stafford Creek Corrections Center in Aberdeen, Washington.  

Huggins' body was found on July 1, 2015 by loggers near the Clark County Fairgrounds. Investigators said he died of "homicidal violence" and was dumped off a dirt road near I-5.

Police said more arrests are possible in this case.
