PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — After months of eluding law enforcement, a woman accused of murdering her ex-boyfriend in July 2022 was arrested on Friday, according to Portland police.
The Portland Police Bureau says Janae Kelley 43, who allegedly killed Aaron Follstad-Martin in the Powellhurst-Gilbert Neighborhood on July 15, 2022, was arrested in Chandler Ariz., by the U.S. Marshals Violent Offender Task Force. She was charged with second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon.
Kelley is expected to remain in Arizona pending the extradition process, PPB says.
According to court documents, Kelley has a criminal background and was arrested with Follstad-Martin nearly a year ago.
A warrant for Kelley’s arrest regarding Follstad-Martin’s death was issued in Aug. 2022.
