CLACKAMAS COUNTY, OR (KPTV) -

The man charged with shooting and killing his wife’s friend is back in Oregon and faced a judge Wednesday.

Washington State Police troopers arrested Gregory Siegberg Sunday night after he crashed his car near Ridgefield. They say he was drunk and confessed to killing someone in Oregon.

Siegberg waived extradition from Washington and made his first court appearance in Clackamas County Wednesday.

On Sunday, investigators say Siegberg was at home in oak grove, and his soon to be ex-wife and her friend Melissa Vargas were there, too.

Bambi Stilgebouer, Vargas’ sister, told FOX 12 that the three got into an argument over politics.

Deputies say a few minutes later Siegberg shot Vargas in the back of the neck and killed her, adding that  he also fired several shots at his wife, but she managed to run away.

Stilgebouer says Siegberg needs to admit his guilt and do his time.

“That’s what I want to ask him, ‘Why were you such a coward that you shot her in the back?’” she said. “I want them to know she was definitely a good person at the end. And I definitely want justice for him. If he doesn’t plead guilty, I will be in that courtroom every day.”

Siegberg is charged with murder and attempted murder. He’s being held without bail and he’ll be back in court on December 7.
