Up until Tuesday, no one had been charged for Gora's death, which a medical examiner determined was caused by homicidal violence.

Amanda Marin, 38, has been charged with second-degree murder, first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary. Marin was one of two people involved with Gora’s murder, the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office said. According to the DA’s office, the other person, who has not yet been arrested, killed Gora.

The probable cause affidavit in the case has been sealed due to the ongoing investigation.

When Gora's grandson, Sam Scalf, heard about the arrest he said, "I was ecstatic. It was the best feeling ever. I've been waiting for this."
