Two Tucsonans were arrested in California in connection with the death of a 55-year-old man earlier this month.
Wiley Michael Troy, 33, and Charlie Haney, 24, were taken into custody Thursday by West Covina Police Department officers, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.
Arrest warrants were issued for Troy and Haney after the man died in a hospital Sept. 21 from injuries resulting from a fight on Sept. 16, Widmer said. The victim’s name has not been released.
Tucson police detectives were in West Covina following up on the investigation, and Troy and Haney will remain there awaiting extradition to Tucson, Widmer said.
Police were called to a home in the 200 block of South Norris Avenue, near East Broadway and South Kino Parkway, shortly after 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 16 and found the victim with serious injuries as a result of a fight, Widmer said.
Troy and Haney fled before police arrived, officials said.
Police determined one of the two suspects and the victim were related. All three people lived at the home, Widmer said. Wiley was wanted on suspicion of first-degree murder, and Haney was wanted on suspicion of aggravated assault, Widmer said.
