SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Police have arrested a 34-year-old man in connection with the death of a man whose body was found in a California field last month.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/29kp6CZ ) that the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department believes the arrested man fatally shot 23-year-old Boakai Konneh.

A Sheriff’s Work Project crew found Konneh’s body while cleaning up trash on June 14. Authorities say Konneh was shot in the upper torso earlier that day.

Police say in a news release that the man they arrested knew Konneh and shot him after a disagreement. It’s unclear if the shooting took place in the field.
