Frank Nifon has been indicted by a Clackamas County Grand Jury for Murder in the First Degree in connection to the double homicide of 42-year-old Stanafurd Blacknall and 32-year-old Jamahl Nash on Oct. 12, 2022.

He was arraigned before Judge Katherine Weber on Nov. 17, 2022 and a no-bail hold was imposed by the court.

Additionally, there is an outstanding arrest warrant for Kaythan Tenry in connection to these homicides.

Once any charges are resolved in Washington, Tenry is expected to be extradited to Clackamas County.
