EUREKA, Calif. (AP) — A felon serving a sentence at Avenal State Prison has been charged with two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder in the death of a Humboldt State University geography instructor and a Hoopa woman.
The Eureka Times-Standard reports 28-year-old Jason Anthony Warren originally was arrested on a warrant when he didn't appear for sentencing in an unrelated case, just hours after the Sept. 27 hit-and-run that killed 40-year-old Suzanne Seemann as she was jogging. Investigators looking into the hit-and-run later discovered the body of 47-year-old Dorothy Ulrich in her Hoopa home.
District Attorney Paul Gallegos says Warren also faces special circumstance allegations of multiple murders, lying in wait and torture, and two counts of willful, deliberate premeditated attempted murder tied to Ulrich's death.
Warren is scheduled to be arraigned on March 28.
