Public records show an Order of Protection was issued on February 1st 2019 between the alleged suspect and the victim.

Yesterday evening Clinton County Deputies were advised of a vehicle pursuit on I-35 of a homicide suspect by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The suspect later wrecked the vehicle and fled on foot. After a brief standoff, he was taken into custody.

The suspect was identified as Abdon Ochoa-Villaneda who had warrants for First Degree Murder and Attempted First Degree Murder, with a 5 million dollar bond out of Winnebago County Illinois

Upon arrival, officers located one deceased adult female, and a second adult female who was suffering from a gunshot wound.
