LAS VEGAS (AP) - A suspect has been arrested in connection with a homicide case in Las Vegas last year,.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said 38-year-old Carlos Figueroa remains in the Clark County jail on suspicion of murder with a deadly weapon.

He’s being held without bail and scheduled to appear in court Monday.

It was unclear Sunday if Figueroa has a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.

Police said the body of 29-year-old Natelie Carbajal was found burning in the desert a mile east of Seven Magic Mountains on July 4, 2019.

An autopsy showed she died from a gunshot wound to the head and the death was ruled a homicide.

Family members said Carbajal gave birth to a baby girl only a few months before she was killed.
