Pease was arrested after a traffic stop in Forks on Sept. 19. He was booked into the Clallam County jail for investigation of an unrelated domestic violence assault.

Warren and Pease each were charged Monday with second-degree murder.

Tacoma Police say Jackson  was last seen on video surveillance with the co-defendants Sept. 4 and was reported missing Sept. 8.  Her body was discovered in a wooded area on the military base south of Tacoma on Sept. 13.

The Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that Jackson had three gunshot wounds to the head and multiple skull fractures.

The criminal complaint says Warren’s wife told the FBI that she had seen Warren and Pease with blood on their clothing on or about Sept. 4. It says when FBI agents were interviewing Warren’s ex-wife in Forks on Sept. 19 they were approached by Warren, who asked if they were there “because of the missing girl.”.

Warren agreed to be interviewed at the Clallam County Sheriff’s Office, where he admitted that he was present when Jackson was killed but said Pease committed the homicide.
