GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) – The man and woman arrested in the shooting of a Klamath County sheriff’s deputy were in court Friday, where a judge set their bail at $10 million each.

Public defender Sammy Sanchez told the judge in Klamath Falls that her office would be hiring special attorneys to represent the two on charges of attempted aggravated murder and other counts.

District Attorney Rob Patridge says the case against 30-year-old William Jack Parkerson and his girlfriend, 33-year-old Karey Lee Pascoe, would go to a grand jury next week, and they would be arraigned on the indictments Sept. 8.

Meanwhile, 40-year-old Deputy Jason Weber was to undergo surgery in a Portland hospital for a head wound.

He was shot Wednesday during a traffic stop in Klamath Falls.
