Two brothers and a third man were arrested Wednesday and accused of killing 37-year-old Rosario Maria Morey, police said.
Christopher Leighton, 23, Robert Leighton, 25, and Zachary Roesch, 21, are charged with first-degree murder, first-degree burglary and kidnapping, said Tucson police spokesman Sgt. Fabian Pacheco Wednesday.
Morey was dead when officers answered a call from her boyfriend, who said he had found her unconscious and not breathing in her ground floor condominium in 1600 block of North Wilmot Road on Aug. 20, suffering from “obvious trauma.”
Pacheco would not release how Morey died, saying the information played a role in identifying the three who are charged.
Pacheco said all three are from Rio Rico and were in the custody of the Arizona Department of Corrections at the time of the arrests and are serving time on unrelated charges.
That could not be confirmed with state prison officials.
