One man is dead and another sits in the Mariposa County Jail facing murder charges following a Saturday night disturbance in Midpines.

Few details are currently available, but Mariposa County Sheriff Doug Binnewies said Jeffery Clark, 51, was arrested and charged with murder late Saturday night.

Deputies responded to a Rancheria Creek Road address and found a number of people at the scene. Emergency medical services also responded.  

One man, an adult who has not been identified, was found dead at the residence.  

As a result of the on scene investigation, Clark was arrested for murder.  

Further investigation is continuing and a Press Release will follow possibly later today. 

The Gazette will continue to follow this story and provide updates as information becomes available.
