Dayton man indicted in Oregon girl's murder

An Oregon grand jury this afternoon handed down an indictment charging Dale Hill of Dayton with the 1998 kidnapping and murder of Oregon teen Stephanie Condon.

Hill, 39, was scheduled to be released from the Lyon County Jail tomorrow affer having served 15 days of a 30 day sentence for failing to register as a felon.

But hours before his release, an Oregon grand jury came back with indictments against him, said Lyon County Sheriff's Capt. Rob Hall.

He is expected to be additonally booked in the Lyon County Jail on a charge of felony fugitive from justice.

Hall said the grand jury has indicted Hill on charges of aggravated murder, murder and aggravated kidnapping.

Condon disappeared in 1998 when she was 14-years-old. Her remains were found on March 13 near an abandoned logging road outside Glide, Ore.

Hill has been a suspect through much of the case.

He was arrested at his Dayton Valley Road apartment March 25 on charges of failing to register as a convicted felon, which is unrelated to the Condon case.

Hill pleaded guilty to that charge and was sentenced to 30 days.
