BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - An Oroville man suspected of murdering a man in November was arraigned on Monday, according to District Attorney Mike Ramsey.  

Ramsey said Daniel Shamblin was charged with murder, resisting officers, two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon and unlawful possession of ammunition by a felon. 

Ramsey said the guns that Shamblin was found in possession of were loaded. 

He added all the charges are enhanced with allegations that Shamblin committed the offenses while on bail on a different drug and gun case.

Shamblin was arrested last week after the Oroville Police Department began investigating a deadly stabbing in the area of Oro Dam Boulevard and Olive Highway on Nov. 22. 

On Monday, the Oroville Police Department identified the victim as 50-year-old Christopher McHugh of Oroville. 

On Thursday, deputies tried to stop a vehicle that Shamblin’s girlfriend, Kayla Spoon, was driving. Police said Spoon took off before crashing into a ditch on Mt. Ida Road in Oroville. 

She was in court for arraignment on Thursday. She was charged with felony accessory and two counts of assault on a peace officer, according to Ramsey. 

Ramsey said her charges are enhanced with allegations that she committed the offense while on bail for a previous stolen car case. 

Spoon and Shamblin are held in jail on no bail. They are scheduled to be back in court on Thursday.
