An Oregon man who got into a heated argument over laundry with his brother allegedly ended up murdering his sister-in-law.
On May 16, Shane Michael Finnell, 25, fatally shot 29-year-old Alexandra Arb-Bloodgood in the head in North Portland, The Oregonian reported, citing court documents.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed in Multnomah County Circuit Court, a neighbor called 911 after hearing a gunshot around 8:30 a.m., and saw the suspect, who appeared to be upset, waving his arms.
The victim’s husband, Jordan Arb, told responding Portland police officers that he and his brother, Finnell, got into a fight about laundry and the suspect threw a potted plant at him, the affidavit shows.
Arb said his brother then walked up to the victim, who was sitting in a chair on the back patio facing away from him, and “shot her in the back of the head at close range with a revolver,” the documents state.
After his arrest, according to the documents, Finnell allegedly told cops: “I did a horrible thing.”
Finnell is accused of second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon. He is being held without bail at the Multnomah County jail, online records show.
