GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) -- A Southern Oregon woman has been indicted on a charge of murder in the slaying of a man whose body was found at a remote campsite.

The Grants Pass Daily Courier reports that 38-year-old Jacquelyn Kelly Novack of Murphy was indicted Friday on charges of murder, tampering with evidence and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

She was arrested two weeks ago in Eugene on a probation violation, and the same day authorities discovered the body at a campsite near Sunny Valley.

The man's name has not been released, but court records say he was killed with a gun on Nov. 1.

State police say the investigation began three weeks ago when they got a report of a missing person who was believed to be dead.
