Investigators determined Jose Luis Ruiz-Santiago, 29, was involved in the death of Cisneros-Martinez.

Police have not released any detail on what led to the alleged killing or how Cisneros-Martinez was allegedly murdered.

Officials said Ruiz-Santiago was arraigned on Aug. 30 and charged with second-degree murder, but the probable cause affidavit in the murder investigation was sealed to not jeopardize the investigation.

He was also convicted of first-degree arson earlier this year, but the Oregonian stated it was unclear when he was released from jai.
