Second Man Charged In Klickitat County Double Murder

The Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office says a second man has been arrested in the March double murder of a pair from the Yakima area.  The Sheriff’s Office says 58-year-old Larry Duane Kleven was arrested over the weekend and charged with three counts of second degree murder in the deaths of Jeremy Wyatt and Elisha King, along with other various charges.  Kleven had initially been booked in the Klickitat County Jail shortly after discovery of the homicide at the end of Box Canyon Road on rendering criminal assistance and evidence tampering charges, and was released after posting bail.  But the Sheriff’s Office says further investigation led to the new charges being filed and Kleven being booked into the County Jail.  He made his first appearance in Klickitat County Superior Court on Monday, and bail was set at $1 million.  A second suspect, 31-year-old John Scott Raczykowski of Rufus, is currently in the Klickitat County Jail on two counts of first degree murder.
