Tucson police make arrest in woman's death

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Authorities said a suspect is in custody in connection with the death of a woman whose body was found in a wash on Tucson's east side.

Pima County Sheriff's officials said Michael Donald Norris, 49, is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder.

The body of Debra Ann Scotko, 51, was discovered Tuesday night in the Pantano Wash. Tucson police officers responded to a 911 call about a woman in distress.

The wash is in the county's jurisdiction and deputies and officers searched the area for a man believed to be involved with the woman's death.

They said Norris was found a short time later and detained.

He was booked Wednesday into the county's Adult Detention Center. Authorities didn't immediately know if Norris has a lawyer.
