Pinal County Sheriff's Office says the person wanted in connection with a man found dead in San Tan Valley has been taken into custody.

Chad Jenkins, 34, was reportedly located in Mesa and arrested on Wednesday night. He was the second and only person still wanted in connection with the death after 24-year-old Danielle Kinyon was taken into custody on Tuesday night in Chandler.

Help from the public helped lead officials to both suspects. Stolen vehicles associated with the suspects wanted after the death were also recovered.

Sheriff Paul Babeu said in a press conference on Thursday morning that the shooting reportedly occurred amid a verbal confrontation near the scene where the body was found.

The victim, Curtis Fish, was shot several times. Sheriff Babeu says no one offered to render aid or stayed nearby after the incident, but deputies believe more people may have been witnesses.

Officials have conflicting information, but say Kinyon and Fish were living together. It has not been confirmed whether there was a love-triangle situation before the incident.

No other suspects are currently being sought, but PCSO is asking for anyone with more information to come forward.
