PHOENIX (AP) - Police in Phoenix have identified a man who was found fatally shot at a motel two months ago and have arrested a suspect in the homicide case.

They say the victim has been identified as 30-year-old Freddie L. Stewart.

Police say detectives developed probable cause to arrest 31-year-old Antoine L. Jones on Thursday on suspicion of murder.

It’s unclear if Jones has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.

Police responded to a motel room on Nov. 29 after someone reported hearing shots fired. Officers arrived and found a man with gunshot wounds.



Fire personnel arrived and pronounced the victim dead at the scene.

The man was later identified as Stewart, but police did not immediately release the hometowns of the victim or suspect.
