Police arrested a man suspected of murder after finding a body in the backyard of an Alhambra home. Last month, officers responded to reports of a body in the backyard of a South Sierra Vista home. They investigated and found the partially hidden bloodied body of a man who lived at the home. Witnesses said the suspect beat the man to death with a pipe.
Police located the suspect nearby. He had tried unsuccessfully to commit suicide. First responders transported him to the hospital for treatment and he survived. Detectives say the suspect killed the victim because he believed that the man was having an affair with his wife.
Upon entering the home, detectives discovered that someone had illegally subdivided the home into eight small bedrooms. The garage had been divided into three separate living spaces and rented to Chinese immigrants. Four of the residents were home at the time of the altercation.
In addition to homicide charges, the man also faces charges of domestic violence, making criminal threats and a sexual offense.
