Suspect arrested in Beavercreek double-homicide

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say they have arrested a man in connection with the slaying of two men southeast of Portland.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday evening that 33-year-old Robert Hilands was arrested and booked into jail on charges of aggravated murder and unlawful use of a weapon.

Sgt. Brian Jensen said deputies found the bodies near a gate Tuesday in the community of Beavercreek. He says two women called 9-1-1 to report they couldn't find their boyfriends after receiving information the men were being shot at.

The sheriff's office identified the victims as 40-year-old Dustin Childress of Molalla and 50-year-old Thomas L. Hegar. An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday but authorities say both died of gunshot wounds.

Jensen says it's unclear if the boyfriends are the same men found dead.
