Shawn Quentin Greenwood, the 48-year-old Vale man arrested Monday afternoon and charged with the nonfatal shooting of a man, was also charged today with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Angela Michelle Parrish, 30, of Vale.
Police found Parrish's body Monday in a building near the BLM's Baker Resource Area compound at 3100 H St. The building is not part of the BLM property but is on an adjacent property that previously was the New Tribes Mission.
Police found Parrish's body while investigating the shooting of Nathaniel Leeland Brown, 37, who Greenwood is accused of shooting in the hand.
Greenwood was arrested Monday afternoon and charged with two counts of second-degree assault in the shooting of Brown, who was treated at Saint Alphonsus Medical Center in Baker City.
Greenwood, who was arrested by Malheur County Sheriff's deputies about 3:34 p.m. in the Mormon Basin area of northern Malheur County, south of Durkee, is in the Baker County Jail.
An affidavit signed by Baker County District Attorney Greg Baxter states that Brown "told police investigating the shooting that "there was also a female in one of the buildings" near the BLM office. The affidavit reads: "Law enforcement entered into the outbuilding to search for the female. While inside they saw several spent cartridges.They then saw the deceased."
