HILLSBORO, Ore. — A Hillsboro man has been charged with killing his wife, who was found dead on Sunday.

Police arrested Toby Epling on Tuesday in Hillsboro, one day after he was identified as a “person of interest” in the death of Glenda Noah, The Oregonian/OregonLive reported.

A charging document filed in court accuses Epling, 41, of second-degree murder. Officers responded around 3 a.m. Sunday to a report of a domestic disturbance and found Noah’s body.

Hillsboro police said Monday they were searching for Epling. Police said Epling should be considered “armed and dangerous,” but Hillsboro Police Sgt. Clint Chrz said officers did not believe Epling posed a broader threat.

Chrz said Epling was found a few blocks from his home, after a community member recognized him from a police social media post and called 911. It wasn’t immediately known if Epling has a lawyer to comment on the case.

Chrz said he couldn’t discuss the circumstances of the killing, or the exact cause of Noah’s death. Court documents related to the case were sealed, citing an ongoing investigation.
