DA offers new details in ‘violent death’ of Redmond woman

We’re learning more tonight about the alleged murder of a Redmond woman, found dead in her home on the western edge of Redmond Monday.

Court documents identify the suspect at 61-year-old Clinton Holland, who was arrested on unrelated charges in the parking lot of Mount Hood Meadows in Hood River County.

During the investigation into the murder of Nicole Jakubek, detectives served multiple search warrants, according to the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office.

The search warrants led to evidence linking Holland to the murder, said Sgt. Jayson Janes.

Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel won’t say exactly how 54-year-old Nicole Jakubek was killed other than to say “it was a violent death, that was clear.”

“Mr. Holland was a suspect because he had been in a relationship with Ms. Jakubek, though they had recently broken up,” he said.

Hummel said the period following a break-up can be a high risk time for domestic violence.

Holland was arrested in Jakubek’s car; his vehicle was discovered at her property in the 300 block of SW 35th street.

She was found dead in the home after a family member called authorities to perform a welfare check.

Holland is being held on $150,000 bond in the Northern Oregon Regional Corrections Facility on multiple charges including second-degree murder, felony drunk driving, criminal mischief, and second-degree assault.

It’s unclear when he’ll return to Deschutes County to face the murder charges.
