According to court documents obtained by KOIN 6, Warren’s criminal history shows “an active case, indicted in Arkansas for murder and abuse of a corpse.” It was that Arkansas case that led to Warren’s appearance in a Clark County court Wednesday.
During the court proceedings on Wednesday, Warren’s lawyer said “he is the Mr. Warren listed on the documents, but I’d like to hold off waiting on extradition until I can talk to him.”
Court documents show that Warren had been in a relationship with Melendez, who reported “…being physically assaulted and shot at by boyfriend, Kirkland Warren” at her apartment, saying “Kirkland was driving near the balcony window and shot at Meshay as she looked at him outside.”
On another occasion, the court documents also show that Melendez called police to say he was “putting his hands on her and choking her.”
Melendez and Stewart were last seen in the area of Vancouver Mall Drive and Northeast 77th Avenue, according to Vancouver police.
On March 19, authorities arrested Warren on charges of tampering with a witness, illegally possessing a firearm and violating a domestic violence order meant to protect Melendez.
Warren’s bail is currently set at $1,120,000 at Clark County Jail
