HILLSBORO, Ore. (KOIN) — An accused murderer is now linked to having sex with a minor, according to court documents.

Roger Emir Gastelum-Medina was previously charged with murder, being a felon in possession of a firearm and 2 counts of unlawful use of a weapon. The grand jury added one count of delivering methamphetamine and 5 counts each of third-degree rape and second-degree sexual abuse. The abuse is said to have occurred between March and June 2016.

Earlier this month, a grand jury heard evidence into allegations that Gastelum-Medina “unlawfully and knowingly” engaged “in sexual intercourse” with a minor.

Gastelum-Medina was arraigned Wednesday in Washington County Circuit Court.

The murder charge stemmed from a shooting that happened near a park in Aloha.

He is being held without bail in Washington County Jail.
