KLAMATH FALLS, Ore.-- A Klamath Falls man is behind bars on murder charges.
21-year-old Uriah Vargas is accused of fatally stabbing Melina Ghost this morning.
NewsWatch 12's spoke with Melina’s aunt who says Melina didn't know the suspect, Uriah Vargas, very well.
She'd consider them acquaintances.
She says she met the suspect a few days ago and she got a weird feeling from him.
Melina was found stabbed shortly after midnight Wednesday morning at the intersection of Oak Avenue and Commercial Street in downtown Klamath Falls.
Melina’s Aunt, Danita Coss Bobo says, "The extreme that he did is unfathomable, that he could do something like that, to someone you didn't know that well, someone that was an acquaintance, for someone to be kind one moment and then to do that to somebody."
Melina's aunt says she learned some people heard arguing before her niece was stabbed.
Melina is survived by her two young children.
Melina's aunt says Melina loved music, making people laugh, and was always eager to help her family.
The family also says thank you to whoever left a note at Melina’s temporary memorial site that reads, “I was the man who found you but I couldn’t help you and it broke my heart.”
The family is planning to have a candlelight vigil Thursday evening at the spot where Melina was found.
Vargas is being held without bail and is expected to have a video arraignment Thursday morning.
