HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - Two men have been arrested in the December death of a man found in a burning Henderson home.

Authorities say Julius Zavalza and Jose Valle, both 21, were taken into custody without incident around noon Tuesday.

They are facing charges of murder with the use of a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit murder, robbery and first-degree arson.

Henderson police had been investigating the death of 20-year-old Walter Wu as a homicide. They say he was stabbed multiple times in the head and neck, and asphyxiated.

Firefighters and police had responded to Wu’s home and found him unconscious in a bedroom of the home he shared with his mother.

His truck was missing from outside his home. Police say it was found about 30 minutes north at an apartment complex.
