PHOENIX -- A man was arrested Tuesday for the murder of a woman who was found naked in a Tempe, Ariz., neighborhood.

The body of Annovedwin Begay-Barakzai, 23, was found June 15 laying in the roadway of the 1900 block of East Minton Drive.

Police were unable to identify the body but a tipster alerted police to a possible name on Friday. After confirming the victim, Tempe Police Sgt. Mike Pooley said it was "a very easy trail" to the suspect, 27-year-old Douglas Ray George.

George was arrested earlier in June on suspicion of abusing Begay-Barakzai, his girlfriend.

"Obviously he was very violent," said Pooley. "He has a history of being violent.

George was charged with second-degree murder.
