An arrest has been made in connection with a woman's body found Wednesday in a Murrieta apartment fire.
Marquise Denzell McGlown, 22, of Hemet was taken into custody Friday, according to Murrieta police Lt. Tony Conrad.
McGlown was booked at Southwest Detention Center on a state parole violation, Conrad said in a news release Saturday.
McGlown is considered the primary suspect in the death of 23-year-old Shanae Christiana Wesley, who was identified by coroner's officials Friday, Conrad said.
"Murrieta police investigators continue to investigate this case as a homicide," Conrad said.
Records show McGlown—who previously served a two-year prison term for a 2008 residential burglary—was arrested about 1:04 p.m. Friday on Latham Street in Hemet.
"Results from the Coroner’s Office autopsy and presentation of this case to the Riverside County District Attorney [are] still pending," Conrad said. "The Murrieta Police Department expects additional charges against McGlown to be filed in the near future."
Conrad also confirmed that it was Wesley’s 3-year-old son who was rescued from the apartment during the fire.
"He was treated after the incident and has been released from a local hospital in good condition. His identity will not be released," Conrad said.
Police encouraged anyone with information regarding this investigation to come forward. Detective Sgt. Phil Gomez can be reached at 951-461-6356 for anything related to this investigation, Conrad said.
The suspect was being held on no bail, sheriff's jail records indicated.
