    WA - Jessica Scholl, 17, stabbed to death in her Renton home, 25 May 2012


    SEATTLE (AP) — A Washington state man wanted in connection with the death of his 17-year-old ex-girlfriend [Jessica Scholl] who was found in a burning home was arrested in Oklahoma City on Monday, authorities said.

    Jarod Lane, 19, was picked up by Oklahoma City police and Oklahoma state troopers after his abandoned vehicle was spotted on the shoulder of Interstate 35 about 18 miles north of Oklahoma City, and a television news crew reported seeing him on the road, said Betsy Randolph, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

    Police in Oklahoma on Monday arrested Jarod Lane, 19, in connection with the death of his former girlfriend, 17-year-old Jessica Scholl of Renton, who was found stabbed and beaten in a Renton house fire Friday morning.

    Lane had initially been identified as a "person of interest" in the case, but the Renton Police Department is now referring to him as a suspect. His arrest came after he ran out of gas in Enid, Okla.

    Feature article from February 2013:


    On a blue, sunswept morning last May, the mountain is out, rising sugary-white above the mist. It will be 71 degrees by the time the Folklife festival kicks off the long Memorial Day weekend. In Renton on this gorgeous morn, David Hawron peers out his bedroom window and sees dark smoke pouring from an upper-floor window of the gray split-level next door. He calls 911. Below he notices two residents of this well-ordered neighborhood with garden hoses, doing what little they can. It is 7:48 a.m. Within 10 minutes, firefighters appear, EMTs, three ambulances, and a blaze of patrol cars, their blue-and-red lights flashing.

    Hawron takes it all in: the churning smoke, the body being carried out in a fireman's arms, the futile efforts to restore a heartbeat with chest compressions, and then the sheet going over the corpse, covering the girl who used to knock on his door at holiday time toting a tin of green- and red-sprinkled cookies.
    From October 2013:


    Jarod Thomas Lane was sentenced to 33 years in prison Friday afternoon for killing his former girlfriend, Jessica Scholl, in her home in May 2012 and then setting fire to her house...

    Lane had pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and first-degree arson and time was added because weapons were used.
