RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Sparks man has been arrested in the death of a 57-year-old man whose body was found in a Reno apartment.

Police said Thursday that 25-year-old Jamelle Russell was booked on charges of open murder and burglary in the death of Steven Arnold.

Officers responded to a report of a residential burglary in progress Saturday and found Arnold dead inside an apartment in north Reno.

Detectives say they were able to positively identify a man seen in the area at the time of the burglary as Russell after pursuing several leads and interviewing several witnesses.

Police have not yet disclosed Arnold’s cause of death.
