FALLBROOK, Calif. — A 27-year-old Fallbrook man was jailed Saturday morning in connection with the murder of a 20-year-old woman whom authorities said he had previously dated.

Deputies received a call at 4 p.m. Friday that a suspicious person, possibly the suspect, Oscar Rodas, was at the Colorspot Nursery, located at 2575 Olive Hill Rd, according to Lt. Rich Williams of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
