GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — Police in Oregon say a man who killed a California deputy is also a suspect in the slaying of a retired Oregon educator.

Spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin said Thursday that police in Eugene, Ore., are still sifting evidence in the shooting death of 79-year-old George Bundy Wasson, who was found dead in his burning home,

But she says it is more likely than not that he was killed by 32-year-old Ricardo Antonio Chaney.

Chaney is also suspected of carjacking two men a short time later outside their home before driving to California, where sheriff’s officials say he shot and killed Mendocino County Deputy Ricky Del Fiorentino before being shot and killed himself.
