LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – The man authorities believe murdered a woman and left her body inside a Las Vegas home last weekend was arrested Friday.
Jaime Santana was picked up by Las Vegas Metro police officers in the area near Charleston Boulevard and Palm Street Friday, a LVMPD statement reported.
Santana, 25, was identified as a suspect in the killing of Cinthia Wendy Perez Rodriguez inside a home on Lilac Lane near Rancho Drive on August 12.
The home’s residents said they found the 25-year-old woman’s body partially clothed in one of the home’s bedroom. Two residents said they did not know Perez Rodriguez. Investigators believe the woman was involved in a violent struggle with Santana and suffered multiple injuries leading to her death.
