KENNEWICK, Wash. -

Prosecutors in Benton County have charged an Oregon man with killing a Pasco co-worker whose body was one of three found near a cornfield in south-central Washington in August.

The Tri-City Herald says (http://is.gd/goHcEx) 23-year-old Francisco Miranda-Resendiz is accused of killing 22-year-old David Perez-Saucedo.

Miranda-Resendiz has been charged in Oregon with attempted assault and other crimes. He has been held at the Umatilla County Jail since Aug. 10. He must be extradited to Washington to face the murder charge.

On Aug. 9, a farmworker found the bodies of Perez-Saucedo, pregnant 23-year-old Abigail Torres and 19-year-old Victoria Torres. Miranda-Resendiz has not been charged in the women's deaths. All three were from Pasco, and had been shot to death.

Court documents show Miranda-Resendiz told his work supervisors that he shot Perez-Saucedo. The shootings may have been retaliation for a break-in at Miranda-Resendiz's apartment hours earlier.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said. She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.
