Northern California Man Suspected Of Murdering Oregon Woman

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — A 38-year-old California man is being held on suspicion of murder in the killing of a woman from east Medford, Oregon.

The Mail Tribune reports Medford police found 32-year-old Noemi Ruiz lying dead in her driveway in east Medford after a neighbor called authorities Monday morning.

Medford police say police found Ruiz had been stabbed multiple times.

Acting on a tip by Medford police, officers arrested Enrique Solis-Garcia, in Red Bluff, California, several hours later.

He was lodged in the Tehama County Jail on a no-bail warrant awaiting extradition back to Jackson County.

Medford police Lt. Kerry Curtis said police believe the suspect and victim were known to each other.

Police didn’t find a weapon at the scene.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Solis-Garcia had an attorney.
