  • Authorities say that after the fight, Finnell walked up behind Arb-Bloodgood and shot her while she sat on the rear patio of her home

An Oregon man allegedly shot his sister-in-law Sunday morning after an argument he had with his brother over laundry, police reported.

Officers arrived at the scene of the shooting at 8:34 a.m. to find Alexandra Arb-Bloodgood, 29, dead in her suburban North Portland home from a gunshot wound to the head, according to court documents.

Police arrested, Shane Finnell, 25, on the scene and charged him with second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon in the killing.

When he encountered the officers on the front lawn of the house, Finnell reportedly told them, 'I did a horrible thing,' before he was taken into custody.

Finnell's brother, Jordan Arb, reportedly told police that the shooting took place after the two got into an argument over laundry, during which Finnell threw a houseplant at Arb.

After the argument, Finnell allegedly walked up behind Arb-Bloodgood with a chrome-plated revolver and shot her in the back of the head as she sat in a chair on the rear patio of her home.

Court records from a dismissed, month-old speeding ticket suggest that the three lived together in the home, The Oregonian reported. Details on Finnell's employment status weren't clear.

Upstairs neighbor Jacob Chow told police that he heard a single gunshot before looking outside to see Finnell standing across the street appearing upset and 'flailing' his arms.

When Chow asked Finnell what happened, he reportedly told him that he had shot 'Alex,' referring to his brother's wife.

Matt Bloodgood, Arb-Bloodgood's brother, told Fox 12 that he was still in shock and that the killing was, 'Something that should never happen to anyone.'

'She was just a great person,' he said, describing her as 'very feisty,' and adding 'Word's cant even describe what kind of person she really was.'

'If you ever have anyone that expresses any desire to hurt themselves or others don't hesitate to try and do something about it,' he said.

'I guess that's the biggest thing we can pull out of it.'

The Portland Police Bureau reported that this was the 32nd homicide in the city this year.

According to the city's crime statistics there had been four homicides at the same time last year, and three the year before that.

Not saying that he isn't mentally ill, because he looks like it. But, he probably wanted her, and knew she'd never leave his brother. Ain't no load of laundry out there that is starting a gunfight.

An Oregon man is accused of fatally shooting his sister-in-law during what an affidavit states was an "argument over laundry."
According to a statement from Portland police, officers responded to reports of a shooting at a home in the city's Portsmouth neighborhood just after 8:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.

Police arrived to find the dead body of Alexandra Arb-Bloodgood, 29. Arrested at the scene was 25-year-old Shane Finnell, her brother-in-law.
The statement says Finnell remains in custody, and has been charged with second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon.
According to an arrest affidavit obtained by PEOPLE, Finnell allegedly told police, "I did a horrible thing," moments after his arrest.

Finnell's brother and the victim's husband, Jordan Arb, told investigators he and his brother had been arguing over laundry.
According to the affidavit, Finnell threw a potted plant at Jordan Arb during the argument.

Arb told police his wife was sitting on a chair on their back patio, facing away from Finnell.

Arb alleged his brother walked over to his wife and "shot her in the back of the head at close range with a revolver," the affidavit alleges.

Finnell has not yet entered pleas to the charges against him.

Information on his attorney was unavailable.

Arb could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

It saddens me how easily some people can kill. It’s just like breathing to them. I don’t think Oregon has the death penalty, so I hope this bastard gets life without the possibility of parole.

RIP to this woman.

This had me flashing back to the hellish few months my husband's brother stayed with us. Pure hell and we had to move to a different city to be rid of him. Never again!

Crazy. He argued with his brother but shot and killed the sister in law. Typical actions of a coward loser.
You can tell this guy was a bum. Smoking pot all day, useless bum.

First thought that came to my mind. It makes sense, too.

"I did a horrible thing" He doesn't give a shyt about what he did to that poor woman.

The wife was tired of the grown ass BIL laying up under her roof. The husband probably agreed in silence like many men do with ain’t shit family. So in the bald headed bum’s twisted mind, the wife was the problem.

Insane. Why did he take an argument that he had with his brother over laundry out on the wife? Did he think the sil put his brother up to it because nothing else makes sense? Rip to the sister in law I hope they put him under the jail.

So his bum ass was living with them I reckon. Bum asses really have all the audacity.
It reads to me like he was the loser younger brother, had no place else to live probably no real job and they took him in. They work all day and come back to his mess. The husband tells him to take his laundry (out of the washer? Off the floor?) and act like an adult. He responds by shooting his SIL in the back of her head.
