Arkansas man charged with murder in McDonald County slaying

JANE, Mo. — A Rogers, Ark., man has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of another man in McDonald County more than two years ago.

Fred H. Bremer, 39, was arrested late Tuesday and is being held in the McDonald County jail on $25,000 bond.

The body of Jack McCain, 68, also of Rogers, was found with multiple gunshot wounds from a shooting that McDonald County Sheriff's Department officials say occurred Feb. 20, 2011.

According to the probably cause statement filed by sheriff's officials, Bremer joined McCain in his vehicle under the pretense of helping him feed his animals. While in an isolated area of McDonald County on a dirt road, Bremer allegedly shot McCain repeatedly in the back while McCain was running away.

McCain's body was found on a rural road about eight miles east of Jane.
