HEMET, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a man who was found in an SUV with his dead girlfriend has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise (https://bit.ly/2jggpxM ) says 33-year-old Vincent Marples of Hemet was arrested Tuesday after his SUV was found in a hilly area. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

A search of the area began after Marples reportedly called a relative to say his girlfriend was dead.

Authorities say 32-year-old Cassandra Taylor of Hemet was found dead in the passenger compartment.

There’s no word yet on what caused her death but authorities say it was preceded by a fight with Marples.

Taylor got a temporary restraining order against Marples in 2015.
