The teens were arrested the same day Joda Cain's great-grandmother was found dead in her Cedar Mill home.
View full sizeJacqueline BellKOIN 6 News Two teenage cousins face court appearances Oct. 17 and 18 in
connection with their suspected roles in the death of Jacqueline Bell of Cedar
Mill, a retired PacifiCorp executive and philanthropist.
Bell, 71, was found dead Oct. 5 in her home. An autopsy
showed she died of blunt force trauma.
Her great-grandson Joda Cain, 17, and his cousin Micus Ward,
19, were arrested the same day near La Grande, in eastern Oregon, after they
led Oregon State Police on a high-speed pursuit along Interstate 84.
Authorities said Cain was driving Bell's Lexus sedan, with Ward as a passenger,
at speeds reaching 135 mph.

charges related to the car chase. Ward has been charged with one count of
Cain's mother, Brandi Bell-Gibson, who lives in the suburbs
of Kansas City, Mo., said her son left that area in July to move in with Bell,
her grandmother. Cain had been getting in trouble at school, Bell-Gibson said,
and Bell wanted the teen to live with her. He started his junior year at Sunset
High School in Beaverton this fall.
Bell-Gibson said she was shocked by her grandmother's death
and the accusations against her son.
'My head is spinning,' Bell-Gibson said. 'I'm thinking this
is a nightmare and I'm going to wake up. It's horrible.'
Bell had lived in Cedar Mill for more than two decades,
since she and her husband, George Arney, who died in 1990, built their house in
the 10200 block of Northwest Lee Street.
She retired as corporate controller of PacifiCorp. A 1971
graduate of Portland State University, she served from 2001 to 2007 on the
university's Alumni Association board and donated to the Alumni Association and
the School of Business Administration.
Bell also served on the board of Northwest Pilot Project, a
charity that helps the elderly and disadvantaged.

| Portland State University releases statement on Jacqueline Bell, Cedar Mill homicide victim|
Jacqueline Bell, an alumna of Portland State, was found dead inside her Cedar Mill home, and authorities have arrested her great-grandson and his friend in her death.
Portland State University has released a statement about Jacqueline Bell, a Cedar Mill resident and school alumna who was found dead inside her home Saturday, Oct. 5. Authorities have accused Bell’s great-grandson and his friend in her death, which investigators suspect occurred early the morning her body was found. “We are deeply saddened by this news,” said Françoise Aylmer, vice president for university advancement at PSU. “Jacqueline Bell was a long-time and steadfast supporter of Portland State University and was a deeply engaged member of our alumni board for many years. Our sympathies go out to her family and friends.”Bell graduated from Portland State in 1971 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, said Suzanne Pardington Effros, a university spokeswoman. From 2001-07, Bell served on the university’s Alumni Association board. Bell contributed to the School of Business Administration and the Alumni Association. Bell had retired from the top ranks of Portland-based power company PacifiCorp. She served on the board of Northwest Pilot Project, a charity that helps the elderly and disadvantaged.View full sizeMicus Ward Union County Sheriff's Office Details have been slow to emerge in the slaying. On Monday, authorities announced the arrests of Bell's 17-year-old great-grandson, Jodah H. Cain, and his friend, Micus D. Ward, 19, in the case. The two were captured by Oregon State Police troopers Saturday following a high-speed pursuit on Interstate 84, said Sgt. Bob Ray, a Washington County Sheriff’s Office spokesman. Ray said Cain, a junior at Sunset High School in Beaverton, had been living with his great-grandmother. He spent his freshman year at Aloha High School, went out of state during his sophomore year and enrolled at Sunset this fall, said Maureen Wheeler, a Beaverton School District spokeswoman. She would not say if Cain was involved in any activities at the school. Authorities say Cain and Ward were traveling in Bell’s Lexus sedan at the time of their arrests. During the police pursuit on I-84, speeds reached 135 mph, Ray said. Investigators suspect they were going to Kansas City, Mo., where they both have lived. Just after the pursuit began, deputies at 8:20 a.m. were called to Bell’s home, in the 10200 block of Northwest Lee Street. A person concerned about Bell had asked deputies to conduct a welfare check at her home. Before deputies entered the residence, they learned from state police that her great-grandson had her car. Cain and Ward were taken into custody in eastern Oregon near La Grande, Ray said.Investigators have not speculated on a motive for her death.The Washington County Major Crimes Team is working with state police investigators on the case.Anyone with more information is asked to contact sheriff's investigators at 503-846-2500.Emily E.

| Joda Cain, 17, accused in great-grandmother Jacqueline Bell's death, arraigned in juvenile court|
Joda Cain has been charged in juvenile court with attempting to elude police after authorities say he killed his great-grandmother, Jacqueline Bell, and drove away in her car.
Jacqueline Bell's great-grandson, suspected in her killing, has been arraigned on charges of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and attempt to elude police, according to the Washington County District Attorney's Office.
Joda Harold Cain, 17, who authorities believe killed Bell in Cedar Mill last week, was reportedly arraigned Monday in Washington County juvenile court. Court staff said he was also charged with reckless driving and recklessly endangering another person.
Senior Deputy District Attorney Jeff Lesowski said a grand jury will review homicide charges for Cain and 19-year-old Micus Ward early next week.
Lesowski said Cain would be prosecuted as an adult if he is indicted on a murder charge.
A juvenile court judge ordered Cain to be held without release eligibility, Lesowski said. Cain is in custody at Donald E. Long juvenile detention center.
Cain and Ward were arrested Saturday after a high-speed pursuit on Interstate 84 in eastern Oregon.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office previously described Cain and Ward as friends. Sgt. Bob Ray, a sheriff's office spokesman, said family members have told investigators that Ward and Cain are cousins. The sheriff's office has also corrected the spelling of Cain's first name, Joda, which it initially released as Jodah.
Micus Ward Union County Sheriff's Office Ward is in the Union County Jail. Authorities say when he was arrested he provided police with Bell's address but said he was not an Oregon resident.
The Union County Sheriff's Office said Ward is being held on a charge of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. He is being held on an accusation of criminal homicide out of Washington County, according to the Union County Sheriff's Office.
Washington County authorities say they plan to bring Ward back to Washington County this week.
Cain's next hearing in juvenile court is scheduled for Oct. 18.
