Your MWE does not include a .bib file, so it's not possible to diagnose 
the exact problem. That said, your log's first encoding error looks as 
if pdflatex gagged on the dash(es) separating two page numbers in a 
reference. I suspect the offending characters are in the .bib file, and 
I would not be surprised if they come from a reference that was copied 
from a PDF file or some such and pasted into JabRef. The second encoding 
error seems to involve the same citations, and again seems to be in the 
vicinity of the page range, although the pathology appears slightly
