LEBANON, Ore. -- The man accused of killing two people in Lebanon remains in custody in San Diego, and new details in the case are coming to light.

Brenton Richmond was arrested near the Mexican border Sunday in connection to the murders. He faces two counts of aggravated murder after Tammy Hopper and Erik Jacobs were found dead by police on Saturday.

According to court documents obtained by the Albany-Democrat Herald, the same day police discovered the murders, Richmond allegedly came to the Eugene Airport for a flight to San Francisco.

Based on those documents, before he left, he threw his driver’s license in an airport trash can, and when it was found, it tipped officials off.

Additionally, those documents said Richmond was detained when he presented his passport to customs officers as he was entering Mexico on foot.

It is unclear when Richmond will return to Oregon to face charges or when he will potentially be arraigned.
