Man sought in Wash. killing arrested in Oregon

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Police in Oregon say a man charged with killing his girlfriend in Washington state, posting pictures of her body online and writing that he wanted authorities to find and kill him has surrendered.

Clackamas County sheriff's Sgt. Nate Thompson says 33-year-old David Kalac was arrested Wednesday night at a transit center in Wilsonville, south of Portland.

The Oregonian reports that Thompson says a deputy was patrolling the area when a man came out of nearby bushes and identified himself as Kalac, saying he was wanted for murder out of Washington.

Kalac has been charged with second-degree murder in Tuesday's slaying of Amber Lynn Coplin in Port Orchard, Washington. He was taken to a Portland jail, where he was booked on $2 million bail. Washington detectives have arrived in Portland and hope to interview him.

The dead woman's car was found Wednesday afternoon in Portland.
