DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - Police have arrested a man in the death of an Illinois man whose body was found burning near a Davenport street.

The Quad-City Times reports (https://bit.ly/2t2tTnq ) that 42-year-old Tremayne La-Toine Thomas, of Davenport, was arrested Wednesday and charged with one count of first-degree murder in the May 30 death of 35-year-old Brandon Brooks.

Police say they believe Thomas was an accomplice of Brooks’ in a January burglary. Police say Brooks was seen with Thomas the day before his death and that a search of Thomas’ home turned up blood evidence.

Thomas is being held in the Scott County Jail without bail and could not be reached for comment. An attorney for Thomas did not appear Wednesday afternoon in online court records.
