TUCSON, Ariz. — Pima County Sheriff's deputies arrested a man on in connection with a Northwest side murder.

According to PCSD, deputies responded to the 7800 block of West Dos Rotundo Road at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday to investigate a wreck. They found that a box truck towing an enclosed trailer had driven through a chain-link fence and smashed into a home.

Deputies found 39-year-old Matthew Hosford dead at the scene beside a moving van. They arrested the driver of the box truck, 33-year-old Michael Stewart Jr., who was booked into Pima County Jail on a $500,000 bond and faces a first-degree murder charge.
