Murder suspect back in Jackson County

Medford, Ore. — A man accused of killing his girlfriend is back in Jackson County. Enrique Solis-Garcia was arrested in California.

Enrique Solis-Garcia was arrested in California. He waived extradition last week, allowing him to be brought back to Oregon to face a charge of murder. He was in court on Friday, but has yet to enter a plea.

“His attorney wanted some time to receive police reports and discovery and become familiar with the case,” Senior Deputy District Attorney, Terry Smith-Norton says.

Solis-Garcia is accused of murdering Noemi Ruiz, the mother of his two children. He remains held without bail until his next court appearance in November.
