OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police have made an arrest in the death of a man at an Interstate 5 rest area.

Sgt. Kyle Hove says 37-year-old Michael-Daniel Stepina of Albany has been booked into the Clackamas County Jail on a murder charge.

Police and paramedics were dispatched to the rest area 14 miles south of Portland Monday night to help a man suffering from traumatic injuries. The man died at the scene. He was identified Tuesday afternoon as 55-year-old Timothy Way of Beavercreek.

Police have yet to disclose how Way was killed, or how he encountered the suspect.

Court records show Stepina is a tattoo artist who pleaded no contest to menacing and unlawful possession of a firearm in 2013.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office says there is no connection between this case and that of a woman found dead Monday along a rural gravel road 30 miles south of Portland.
