According to Oregon State Police, Michael Orentlicher, 57, shot and killed Theadore Crowly Friday morning on the Redwood Highway near Cave Junction.
When the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office arrived on scene, Crowly’s body was found in the driveway of the home.
OSP says the landlord-tenant dispute began on October 26 when Orentlicher locked the gate and would not allow Crowly, the tenant, onto the property.
When Crowly returned Friday morning, OSP says he was shot and killed.
Orentlicher was booked into Josephine County Jail for murder and unlawful use of a weapon.
