EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a 33-year-old woman has been charged with murder after a man was found dead inside a vehicle at a Eugene park.

The Register-Guard newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/2jnaeMz ) 32-year-old Joshua Ty Turnage was found dead Saturday after police received reports of a body at Alton Baker Park.

Lacy Marie Lyons has been arrested and booked into the Lane County Jail.

Authorities have not released further details about Turnage’s death.

The park was closed while police investigated and has since reopened.

The Eugene newspaper reported that the investigation took place in a parking lot where St. Vincent de Paul operates a program that allows homeless people to park their cars there overnight. St. Vincent de Paul spokesman Paul Neville says neither the victim nor the suspect had obtained a permit to camp in the lot.
