PENDLETON, Ore. - A man has died after he was found on Highway 11 about two miles north of Pendleton Monday night. The Umatilla County District Attorney says Pendleton Police got a call about 11:17 pm and found 42-year-old Buddy Ray Herron lying injured in the roadway. He was taken to St. Anthony's Hospital where he later died of what the prosecutor's office described as a fatal assault. 22-year-old Joshua Charles Weeks was booked in the Umatilla County jail this morning charged with murder.
