PORTLAND, Ore. – The U.S. Marshals Service says a couple sought in the slaying of two people in Bandon, Ore., have been arrested in Virginia.
The federal agency says Gabriel Morris, his wife, Jessica, and their 4-year-old daughter, Kalea, were taken into custody Monday in Dumfries, Va.
Morris is wanted in the shooting deaths of his mother, 62-year-old Robin Anstey, and her boyfriend, 48-year-old Robert Kennelly Jr., earlier this month near the Oregon coastal town of Bandon. Two counts of aggravated murder have been filed against Gabriel Morris, while his wife has been sought as a material witness.
The Marshals Service says police in Virginia stopped Morris' vehicle after receiving a tip from a resident. His wife was found in a separate vehicle with their daughter. Police say the husband and wife were taken into custody without incident.
