PHOENIX (AP) — Police in Phoenix say a man who's a registered sex offender has been arrested in connection with the death of a woman last week.

They say 29-year-old Humphry Dogbe has been booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder, sexual assault and kidnapping.

He's being held on a $1 million bond with a preliminary hearing scheduled for May 18.

Police say a woman was found dead on the pavement of a commercial fueling station last Friday with her clothes partially removed.

Her name hasn't been released. Witnesses told police they saw a man dragging a woman through the parking lot.

Police say some of the incident was captured on surveillance video and that led to Dogbe's arrest.
