Sacramento County sheriff's deputies have arrested a suspect in connection to the shooting death of a witness in a high-profile murder case.
Sheriff's investigators said 23-year-old Joe Miles is responsible for the death of Marquelle Jones. Jones was a key witness in the trial of three men charged with killing Monique Nelson, a mother trying to protect her son during a 2010 barbershop shootout. Then, last Tuesday Jones was killed in a drive-by shooting in Arden-Arcade.
Detectives have not released Miles' mugshot because the investigation is ongoing. They said there are witnesses that still need to be interviewed, and they don't want the witnesses to be bias because of media reports with Miles' photo.
News10 interviewed Miles at the Sacramento County Jail. He said the arrest came as a complete surprise.
