PORTLAND -- A Portland man was charged with murder in court Tuesday, for the suspicious death of his uncle earlier this month.

Eugene Bigboy, 61, was found dead in his own home on March 10. Investigators initially thought he suffered some sort of medical problem and died. But an autopsy by the Oregon state medical examiner's office determined that he had actually been killed.

Soon after, homicide detectives arrested Bigboy's nephew, 22-year-old Matthew Galen Bigboy, in connection with the death.

Bigboy was arraigned on the murder charges Tuesday and his trial was set to begin on May 7.
