An Israeli woman, along with two other men, was arrested last week in Montana for suspected involvement in a double homicide in California last year.
Orit Oged, 32, originally from Moshav Ramot in northern Israel, and Bradley Kohorst were apprehended by authorities in Missoula, Montana, while another suspect, Cory Spurlock, was arrested Monday in Phoenix, Arizona.
According to U.S. authorities, the three are suspected of being involved in the deaths of William Adrian Larsen, 35, and Yesenia Larsen, 30, whose bodies were found in November 2020 by a snowplow driver near Highway 395, about 10 miles north of Bridgeport, California.
ABC7 reported that during the arrests of Spurlock and Oged, investigators discovered multiple semi-automatic handguns and rifles, ammunition and cash, the statement said.
California's Mono County Sheriff's Office said that investigators believe the suspected killers had business ties with the deceased but did not elaborate on the evidence that linked them to the crime.
The three are awaiting extradition to California. They are expected to be arraigned on charges of homicide and conspiracy to commit a crime, state officials said.
The Israeli consulate in Los Angeles said it has contacted Oged.
