GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Police have made a second arrest in connection with the murders of two Josephine County men whose remains were found in a burned-out car south of Lake Selmac at the end of March.

Oregon State Police identified the two victims as 24-year-old Daniel Hill and 26-year-old Paul Folk. Law enforcement initially responded to calls about a vehicle fire roughly six miles up McMullen Creek Road, south of Lake Selmac. After the fire died down, detectives found the two bodies inside.

Deputies from the Josephine County Sheriff's Office arrested 26-year-old Harley Boitz during a traffic stop in Cave Junction at the beginning of April. He was charged with multiple counts, including murder, arson, and abuse of a corpse.

On Tuesday, Oregon State Police revealed another development in the case. Around 9 a.m. on Monday, officers from multiple agencies arrested Michael Moehring in Linn County "on a warrant related to the double homicide investigation."

"Law enforcement officers from the Eugene Police Department, The US Marshall’s Office, and the Oregon State Police SWAT contacted Moehring in a rest area and he was taken into custody without incident," OSP said.

According to Oregon court records, Moehring has a listed address in Cave Junction. Those records indicate that he has been charged with two counts of first degree murder, first degree arson, two counts of abuse of a corpse in the first degree, second degree arson, and felon in possession of a firearm.
