Tucson police say a 34-year-old man released from prison Monday is accused of killing a woman the same day.

Police say David James Bohart was arrested at a hotel Friday on suspicion of second-degree murder in the killing of 49-year-old Marika L. Jones at a Tucson home.

Bohart remained jailed Saturday and online court records don't list an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

According to police, Jones' body was found Wednesday after a man identifying himself as a lawyer called police with information about a possible killing at the home.

Police were already conducting an investigating because a man using a false name had called 911 on Monday to report he'd just been released from prison and had killed his girlfriend but couldn't provide an address.
