Test-drive killing: E. Wash. man accused in car owner’s death

The Associated Press

YAKIMA — The Yakima County Sheriff’s Office says an 18-year-old Outlook man was arrested early Thursday and accused of fatally shooting a man last seen on a test drive.

The car belonging to 24-year-old Antonio Hernandez-Ledezma of Boardman, Ore., was found Tuesday in an orchard in the Zillah area. There was a significant amount of blood in the passenger seat. A spent bullet also was found in the car.

An investigation led to the arrest, but the body has not been found.

Hernandez-Ledezma was last seen getting into the passenger seat to allow a potential buyer to test drive his car.
