COQUILLE, Ore. – A man is facing murder charges in Coos County after police said they found a dead body in a home with him.
A grand jury indicted Manuel Delgado, 35, Friday morning.
He is accused of stabbing Gregory Durham last weekend in a home on Southeast Third Avenue in Coquille. Police said he was staying at the home with Durham when it happened.
Officers said Delgado also assaulted a third man in the home, Michael Lucas. Lucas showed up with injuries at the Coquille Valley Hospital and told police what happened.
Police said they went to the home and found Delgado asleep in a bedroom, then found Durham’s body in the bathroom.
Delgado was initially arrested on assault charges and named as a person of interest in the murder case.
He is expected to be in court to face the murder charges on Monday.
