Lewis County authorities have made a fourth arrest in connection with the Randle murder case, booking the fiancée of one of the brothers accused of killing 16-year old Ben Eastman III.

Wednesday evening,  Emma L. Brown, 20, of Glenoma, Wash., turned herself in at the Lewis County Jail on an outstanding arrest warrant alleging first-degree rendering criminal assistance.

Brown is the fiancée of Jonathon Adamson 21, who along with his brother, 16-year old Benito S. Marquez, is accused of murdering Eastman and burying him in a shallow grave in Randle. Marquez and Adamson admitted to kicking Eastman dozens of times and raping him a stick while he was still alive, according to the sheriff's office.

The brothers' mother, 43-year-old Kindra Rose Adamson of Randle, was arrested Tuesday in Yakima on suspicion of first-degree rendering criminal assistance.
