FORT MOHAVE, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities say a third suspect has been arrested in a double homicide case in the Fort Mohave area.
Mohave County Sheriff's officials say 28-year-old Jose Eduardo Vizcara of Bullhead City is being held on suspicion of two counts each of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, kidnapping and abandoning a dead body.
Two other suspects — a man and woman from Bullhead City — were arrested earlier this month on similar charges and remain jailed.
Two dead bodies were found Jan. 10 near a burned vehicle in a desert area east of Fort Mohave.
They were later identified the victims as 51-year-old Mona Carter and 22-year-old Daryl Ward, both of Bullhead City.
Sheriff's officials say investigators have been looking into a possible drug connection surrounding the homicides.
