Christopher Matthew Clements, 36, was indicted a day earlier by a grand jury on murder and kidnapping charges in the deaths of Isabel Celis, 6, and Maribel Gonzales, 13. Clements was being held at the Maricopa County Jail “on unrelated charges,” KOLD reported.
Gonzales’ body was discovered in June 2014 in the Avra Valley community near Tucson.
Records showed Clements had a few addresses in Tucson between 2007 and 2012. One of the addresses included an apartment about 2 miles from Celis’ home, KVOA reported.
KOLD reported Clements was slated to be extradited to Tucson from the Maricopa County Jail.
