Murder suspect makes first appearance in court

Medford, Ore. — The man accused of shooting and killing Miguel Angel Delfin outside of the Phoenix 7-Eleven on Friday appears before a judge for the first time on Monday.

Bradley Robert Quillen is facing numerous charges, including murder. He was told that he’s facing life in prison.

Quillen was arrested Friday night, after police were called to a fatal shooting at the 7-Eleven on Highway 99. Judge Lorenzo Mejia formally read Quillen the allegations he’s facing.

“On the first of this month in Jackson County, Oregon, that you unlawfully caused the death of Miguel Delfin, another human being,” Mejia said.

Quillen will remain at the Jackson County Jail without bail. He’s facing numerous charges, including murder, unlawful use of a weapon, and attempting to elude police. He’s expected to be back in court on April 11th.

Gladys Diarte was also in court on Monday, she was arrested at the scene Friday night, for allegedly interfering with the investigation and an unrelated warrant. Judge Mejia ordered her to not contact Quillen, who she says is her husband.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to search for the third person involved in the fatal shooting on Friday. Deputies are calling the male suspect a person on interest, and they’re hoping to get a statement from him. His name has not been released.

Deputies say an autopsy on the victim, Miguel Angel Delfin, 23, will be scheduled for later this week.

Authorities are asking anyone with information in this case to contact the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office.
