TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A woman has been arrested in connection with a fight last week that left a man dead, according to Tucson police.

They said witness interviews and forensic evidence led them to identify 33-year-old Tanya Lynn Aranda as a suspect in last Tuesday night’s fatal fight.

Police said they located Aranda on Saturday and she was booked into the Pima County jail on suspicion of one count of first-degree murder and an outstanding misdemeanor warrant.

It was unclear Sunday if Aranda has a lawyer yet who can speak on her behalf.

Police responded to a report of a physical fight in midtown Tucson and found 43-year-old Jesus Camacho with obvious signs of trauma.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said they believe Camacho was involved in a verbal confrontation that turned physical.
