FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities in northern Arizona say they have arrested a California man in a homicide case.
Flagstaff police say 28-year-old Andreas McCabe of Susanville has been booked into the Coconino County jail on suspicion of second-degree murder and abandonment/concealment of a dead body.
Police say the name of the victim was being withheld until his relatives can be notified.
It was unclear Monday if McCabe has a lawyer yet.
Police say they were called around 5 a.m. Sunday about an unresponsive man who was seen with McCabe at a Flagstaff motel.
McCabe was questioned and allegedly told police detectives that he invited the victim to his room and strangled him.
Police say a motive isn't immediately clear and the county medical examiner will determine the victim's cause of death.
