SAN DIEGO (AP) - San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore says a Marine charged with stealing an assault weapon has been on arrested on suspicion of murder in the death of another Marine's wife.
Louis Ray Perez was arrested on the additional charge Tuesday in the death of 22-year-old Brittany Killgore.
Investigators identified the 45-year-old Marine as a person of interest in the death shortly after the body was discovered last week in brush near a Southern California lake.
The San Diego County district attorney's office says the case is under review. Perez would be the second person to be charged with murder.
A 25-year-old woman pleaded not guilty to murder last week.
