EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Eugene man killed in an alleged dispute with a neighbor Sunday has been identified.

The Register-Guard reports (https://goo.gl/VYKnPH ) 41-year-old Michael Dennis James Long’s identity was released Monday by the Lane County Sheriff’s Office.

Jeffery Witt was charged with murder on Monday afternoon in connection with the incident.

It did not appear Monday that he had entered a plea, and no future court dates have been scheduled.

Witt remains in jail.
