PHOENIX — A third suspect was arrested Wednesday night in connection to the murder of 17-year-old Hailey Stephens at a Casa Grande house party over the weekend, authorities said.

Jesiah Amaru Street, 18, was charged with one count of second-degree murder after he turned himself in to the Casa Grande Public Safety Facility around 7 p.m., according to the Casa Grande Police Department.

Two teenage boys, a 16-year-old from Casa Grande and a 17-year-old from Coolidge, were previously arrested Tuesday in connection to the death of Stephens and the non-fatal shooting of another 17-year-old girl at the party.

Charges for all three suspects will be submitted to the Pinal County Attorney’s Office for review.

More arrests are expected soon, police said.
