Rightwing squatter charged with murder

A squatter who took over a cabin in Okanogan County after getting run out of Snohomish County now faces a murder charge. The accused is a notorious rightwing lunatic.

“A man in custody in Okanogan County for allegedly running over a Seattle-area couple with a pickup, killing a woman, has deep ties to the militia and anti-government movements in Washington, according to court documents, interviews and information from the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).

“James Faire, 55, once ran a ‘Militia Training Center’ on a family farm near Monroe, where individuals affiliated with the patriot and sovereign-citizen movements trained with firearms. Snohomish County shut down the operation five years ago after neighbors complained of the gunfire. …

“Faire is accused of running over two people June 18 during a confrontation at a rural home about 20 miles east of Tonasket, where police reports and court documents indicate Faire and his partner, Angelina Nobilis, 51, had been living without permission for months.

“Killed was Debra L. Long, 51, of Issaquah ….  George Abrantes … was also run over and is in serious condition at Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane. Long and Abrantes were friends of the man who owned the home where the incident occurred.”
