COQUILLE, Ore. -- The suspect in four murders in North Bend was booked into Coos County Jail early Friday morning after being extradited from Wisconsin.

Oen Nicholson allegedly killed his father and struck a couple in a hit-and-run incident at the Mills Casino RV Park before killing a woman at Herbal Choices Marijuana Dispensary. He then reportedly kidnapped a woman in Springfield and fled to Wisconsin, where he turned himself in to officials.

According to a press release from Coos County District Attorney R. Paul Frasier, Nicholson was served extradition warrants in a Wisconsin court on Jul 23. He indicated that he did not want to contest extradition during another court appearance on July 26.

Frasier said officers from Coos County traveled to Wisconsin and returned him to Oregon.

Officials said that Nicholson will make his first court appearance in Oregon at 1 p.m. on Friday.
