Micus Ward of Kansas City and a 17-year-old great-grandson of the victim were both arrested last Saturday in northeast Oregon in Jacqueline Bell’s Lexus.
Washington County sheriff’s deputies found the woman dead in her home that same morning.
Ward was arraigned Thursday in Circuit Court. Court staffers say a probable cause affidavit is sealed. Ward and the other teen are cousins. The 17-year-old so far only faces charges related to the car chase.
Prosecutors say a grand jury will review homicide charges for both cousins next week.
