Sacramento murder suspect arrested in Clackamas County
The suspect in a Sacramento murder case has been extradited back to California after she was arrested by local deputies in Clackamas, police say.
Inez Kakar Savala, 20, is accused of committing the homicide of her now-deceased boyfriend, Jeremiah Zabala, 23, who was shot in a park just after midnight on Nov. 1 and later died in a hospital, per media accounts.
The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office says Kakar Savala was known to have fled to Oregon, spurring the Clackamas County Inter-Agency Task Force to surveil several "suspect locations" and to conduct interviews. A few days later, she was taken into custody without incident on Nov. 22, per a news release dated Feb. 5.
The local investigators also completed several search warrants and obtained evidence in order to assist Sacramento County Sheriff's Office detectives with their case, spurring a commendation letter from the FBI.
