Beau Flynn was 16 when his mother arranged the murder of a teen scheduled to testify in court against Flynn in a stabbing case.

EUGENE, Ore. -- A key player in one of Eugene's most notorious murders is back in trouble with the law.

Beau Flynn was arraigned in Marion County court Wednesday. He is scheduled to enter a plea Oct. 9.

Salem police arrested Flynn on meth charges and on suspicion of being a felon in possession weapons and body armor after pulling him over in Salem earlier this year.

The thought of an armed Flynn sends a chill through Janyce Iturra.

"I tell you this is the way I thought he'd come after me," she said. "That's just in my own fear."

Two teens shot and killed her son Aaron Iturra as he slept in his bed in Eugene in 1994. Flynn's mother, Mary Thompson, ordered the teens to kill Iturra to keep him from testifying against her son.

They all went to prison.

Both teens who killed Aaron have been released, including the triggerman, Jim Elstad. Iturra got the news by automated call on Mother's Day in 2008. She carries both their current mugshots with her to be vigilant.

Thompson is still in prison.

Flynn, who was 16 at the time of the murder, got out of prison but was sent back in connection with the murder of Casey Stafek in 2000 after a jury found him guilty of hindering prosecution and being a felon in possession of a firearm. 

Then he was released again.

"He's been in and out of prison since he was 14 year old," Janyce Iturra said, "and I am worried not just about my family but the entire community of what this guy is capable."

She is relieved no one has been hurt. She hopes that this time Flynn will go to prison for a very long time.

"I have my kids who are just afraid to go outside or go anywhere because we're all looking over our shoulders," she said. "And I guess the peace now is that we don't have to do that."
