Lassen County Murder Suspect Captured Near Red Bluff

A man wanted for a murder in Lassen County was captured in the Red Bluff area. Friday afternoon two 62-year-old men in Westwood were apparently seen fighting and a short time later one of them, Marty Robert Ashley Sr., was found on the side of the road with severe injuries that soon proved fatal. The other man, identified by witnesses as Ed Biggs, had fled the scene. Just over an hour later a CHP officer on Highway 36 east of Red Bluff spotted Biggs’ pickup and took him into custody without incident.
