A man in Helena, Mont., has been arrested for the shooting death of a Grant County man last December.
David E. Nickels, 29, faces a first-degree murder charge for 35-year-old Sage Munro’s death on Dec. 29.
Munro was found shot to death on his living room floor in the 100 block of E Street NE in Ephrata. Nickels was arrested in Helena Wednesday on the murder charge and an unrelated warrant.
The six-month investigation was handled by the Columbia Basin Investigation Team, a collection of detectives from local law enforcement agencies. Munro had a large family and a young son.
