Ignacio Lopez-Leon has been arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder. Records show he was booked into the Maricopa County jail yesterday.
The county attorney's office does not yet have information to provide about the case. We'll update this post later.
Court records show a direct complaint was filed by the county attorney's office on July 6.
Another court record shows some kind of citation from South Mountain Justice Court in April, but his hometown is unknown.
