DALLAS (AP) – A Richardson area man has been arrested in the death of a woman whose beaten body was found in a burning car.
Dallas police on Wednesday announced the arrest of Manuel Rocha Jr., who was sought on a capital murder warrant.
Investigators didn’t immediately say what led to Rocha. He’s charged in the death of Alexus Garcia of Fort Worth. Her body was discovered June 20 in a vehicle that had been on fire.
Police have said they believe Garcia earlier drove to a house in Richardson to meet a man. She texted a friend and raised safety concerns.
Police say a cellphone and a Texas identification card found in the burned vehicle were traced to Rocha.
Online jail records did not immediately list information Wednesday for Rocha.
