KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - Mohave County authorities say a man from the unincorporated community of Yucca is in custody in connection with the possible death of a female friend.

They say 50-year-old James David Collins is being held on suspicion of felony second-degree murder, abandonment of a dead body and theft of means of transportation.

A missing person’s report was issued last October for 54-year-old Cynthia Marie Horn of Yucca.

Authorities say Collins was arrested in Mexico for a weapons violation and allegedly was in possession of Horn’s vehicle.

Collins was arrested Tuesday after allegedly telling investigators he killed Horn, transported her body to Yuma County and buried her on family trust land.

Yuma authorities have recovered human remains. Autopsy results are pending to positively identify the remains and determine the cause of death.
