Convicted murderer makes court appearance for violating parole

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--A convicted murderer who led police on a high speed chase makes his first appearance in court.

Joel Barajas was arrested Wednesday night after police say he took them on a chase through Yakima neighborhoods at speeds of roughly 70 miles per hour.

Barajas was a target in a drug investigation, which would violate his parole on a 1988 murder conviction in Ephrata, Grant County.

The judge set his bail at $100,000.
