Two people were taken into custody Wednesday in connection with the death of a missing Portland man.

Daniel Cohen, 30, was reported missing April 7, 2017 by his family.

His body was found shortly after in Lane County, and a medical examiner determined he died of homicidal violence.

Wednesday, police took 23-year-old Jessika Atkinson and 34-year-old Peter Jirasek into custody on murder charges in connection with Cohen's death.

No other information has been released. Atkinson is also facing a probation violation charge.
