OKANOGAN — Jesus Duarte Vela — a 31-year-old Malott man who called police after fatally shooting his former brother-in-law on Feb. 20 — told a detective that until that morning, he hadn’t seen or spoken to the man he shot since 2007.

Duarte told the detective that after warning Antonio Menchaca Naranjo to stay away from his family that morning, he came home from work that afternoon to learn Menchaca was in a truck near his home, watching his wife as she waited for their children to get off the bus.
