LINN COUNTY, Ore. – A man accused of trying to kidnap a woman in Linn County is now facing a separate kidnapping charge.

Prosecutors said Joshua Jarrett kidnapped and strangled a woman in January, also in Linn County. He was arraigned on those charges Thursday.

On Tuesday, deputies said Jarrett waited inside the trailer of a woman who had a restraining order against him and pointed a pellet gun at her and her brother.
