Ladd Stewart Robson

COOS COUNTY, Ore. -- A man has been indicted for the murder of his half brother in Myrtle Point.

A Coos County grand jury handed down the indictment, charging Ladd Stewart Robson, 54, with the murder of Lance Lucero, 61, of Myrtle Point.

Just before 9:45 am last Wednesday, a 911 call came in to Coos County about a man who was severely injured at a home on Ash Street in Myrtle Point.

Police and medical personnel arrived and found Lucero, who was suffering from severe injuries.

Lucero was taken to Coquille Valley Hospital, where he died around 10:30 am.

The Coos County DA's office says an autopsy showed Lucero died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Robson is set to be arraigned in Coos County at 3:00 pm on Tuesday.
