PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - Authorities are accusing an Oregon man of killing another man and then burning his body to hide the evidence.

The Tri-City Herald reported Thursday (https://bit.ly/2ws8y7x ) that Umatilla County authorities charged 24-year-old Conor M. Dayton with murdering 29-year-old Marcos J. Gutierrez-Rodriguez.

Gutierrez-Rodriguez’s badly burned body was found in late May under the Eastside Road Bridge near Milton-Freewater.

The case will be presented to a grand jury in the near future.
