Arrested made in Newport Beach double killing

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A man has been arrested for the weekend killing of two people at a Newport Beach condominium.

Newport Beach police arrested 44-year-old Jamon Buggs on Thursday for murder. He’s being held on $1 million bail. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.

Investigators believe the Huntington Beach man shot 48-year-old Wendi Sue Miller of Costa Mesa and 38-year-old Darren Partch. They were found dead Sunday in Partch’s Newport Beach condominium.

Acquaintances say Miller, who lived nearby, had given Partch a ride home.

Buggs was arrested Monday in neighboring Irvine in connection with a series of attempted weekend home burglaries. Police say a gun was fired in one incident.

Miller, a mother of two, ran a nonprofit advocacy group called Wings for Justice to help children in the family court system.
