Detectives with the Coconino County Sheriff's Department arrested 19-year-old Maurice Holmes Friday night and charged him with one count of first-degree homicide in connection with the murder of his girlfriend Alisha Joe.
Joe, a 27-year-old, was found dead in a home off of Black Horse Road early Friday morning.
Holmes was present at the residence in Cosinino when police found Joe lying in a back bedroom, and following a series of questions he was arrested a short time later.
While Holmes has been detained, the Coconino County Sheriff's Department has said it's still an on-going murder investigation.
