Three men have been arrested in the death of a Prescott man.

Police said Monday that Russell Mell, 47, James Moorhead, 52, and Paul Robichaux, 53, all transients from Prescott, were arrested last week and booked into jail on charges of second-degree murder.

The three men are believed to have been living in tents in the backyard of David Rodriguez-Rodriguez. At some point on Dec. 2, the three men and David got into an argument that turned physical and David was assaulted multiple times, said police.

The three suspects then left leaving the victim to die in his driveway, according to authorities.

The investigation is on-going and anyone with information is asked to call Detective John Hanna at 928-777-1900.
