GLENDALE, AZ - Glendale police have arrested two suspects in the dragging death of a 16-year-old girl.
Glendale police said Wednesday that 18-year-old Jose Solis Apodaca was arrested at his Phoenix apartment Tuesday night. Eighteen-year-old Lino Chavez was taken into custody last Friday.
Police said 16-year-old Anita Munoz died early Tuesday morning as a result of injuries suffered last Wednesday.
According to police, Munoz was sitting near the office of the apartment complex where she lived, working on her laptop computer, when Chavez and Apodaca drove into the apartment complex and approached the girl. Apodaca allegedly grabbed the girl's computer while Chavez stayed in the car.
Police said there was a struggle over the computer and the suspects drove away with Munoz partially in the car. When the suspects got out onto 67th Avenue near Glendale Avenue, Munoz was either pushed or fell from the vehicle suffering critical injuries.
Both suspects have been booked on charges of first-degree murder. Apodaca also faces charges of aggravated robbery and trafficking in stolen property, according to court paperwork.
Munoz was a student at Independence High School in Glendale.
