PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Deputies say three people have been arrested for hindering prosecution in the death of a 24-year-old Portland woman.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports (https://bit.ly/2eSC8dS ) that two men and a woman were booked into Columbia County Jail on the charges Monday night. Deputies say they hindered the prosecution of three people accused of killing Apache Rose Hightower, whose body was found in September.

Deputies say one of the men arrested Monday is also facing a charge for possession of methamphetamine and the other man is facing a credit card fraud charge. Authorities say the woman was also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Court documents say the group concealed and destroyed a car that may have helped authorities convict Hightower’s killers.
