New details are emerging in the murder of a 27-year-old woman in Oregon last week. According to Oregon Live, Anna Alekseyevna Repkina (pictured) may have been involved in a love triangle with the man suspected of killing her.
Senior Deputy District Attorney Amie Matusko told the Associated Press that prosecutors believe Repkina was in an "interesting love-triangle relationship" with William Hargrove (pictured, left), the suspect in the murder, and another woman, with whom he'd been in a long-term relationship. Apparently, Hargrove was seeing both women and the other woman gave him an ultimatum to pick one. "It was either her or the other, and he made a decision," Matusko told Oregon Live.
They believe that's when Hargrove killed Repkina by taking her "out on a rather desolate logging road, and she was found shot in the back of the head, execution-style." Repkina's body was found in a remote area last Monday
Repkina is a Russian immigrant who came to America only weeks prior to her murder. Authorities believe she came to the country specifically for her romantic relationship.
Hargrove was arrested Wednesday and is being held without bail in Benton County. The next court hearing is slated for June 26.
