LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas police say two people suspected of killing a man and
burning his body near an interstate in Arizona have been arrested in Louisiana.
Police say FBI agents and police in New Orleans arrested 30-year-old Majunique
Brown and 22-year-old Marshan Bowden on Tuesday. Both are from Las Vegas.
They’ve been charged with kidnapping, robbery, conspiracy and murder in the
death of 33-year-old Jason Byes.
Police say they believe the two suspects killed Byes in a downtown Las Vegas
apartment complex Sunday, then dumped his body in Kingman, Ariz. and set it on
fire before continuing their drive to New Orleans.
Police say a passing motorist reported a small fire near an Interstate 40
off-ramp Monday afternoon. After they extinguished the flames, firefighters say
they found Byes’ body.
