TUCSON - A 19-year-old Tucson man has been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of his girlfriend in august.
Tucson police say 17-year-old Ignacia Aranda was found dead of apparent stab wounds on Aug. 9 and Carlos Juaquin Torres Jr. was in the apartment with her body.
Police did not immediately arrest Torres, but conducted an investigation because his girlfriend's death was deemed suspicious.
An autopsy showed she was the victim of a homicide. Tucson police then presented the case to the Pima County Attorney, which obtained an arrest warrant.
Torres was arrested without incident Wednesday afternoon on the warrant, which charges him with first-degree murder.
