LEBANON, Ore. - Two men face charges they murdered a mountain man and left his body at a remote camp in the Oregon Cascades.

The parents of Wayne Keith Klavano, 48, of Lebanon found his body Monday at his camp on Upper Soda Creek Road, about 10 miles north of Highway 20. Klavano made his living as a trapper.

The Utah Highway Patrol arrested two men Thursday on unrelated charges near Brigham City but seized evidence linking them to Klavano's murder, the sheriff's office said. The sheriff declined to elaborate on the evidence to preserve the investigation.

Linn County sheriff's office detectives traveled to Utah to continue the investigation.

The men - Travis Adam Powers, 23, of Windsor, Colo., and Daniel Lewis Armbrecht, 20, of Pargosa Springs, Colo. - now await extradition back to Oregon on warrants charging them with murder. Powers has links to Linn County, the sheriff said.

First they will have to resolve charges of Possession of Narcotics with Intent to Distribute, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Possession of a Gun by Felon in Utah, the sheriff said.
