Albert Carreon was identified as a potential suspect in 2005 and DNA evidence recently linked him to the case.
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - A man already on Arizona's death row has been accused of killing a Tempe man nearly 12 years ago.
Tempe police announced Thursday that 50-year-old Albert Carreon is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder.
Carreon was sentenced to death in April 2003 after being convicted of first-degree murder in a Chandler case.
Police say 20-year-old Jose "Joey" Gonzalez was found dead inside a parked car at the Fiesta Village Townhouse complex in Tempe on Dec. 20, 2000.
They say detectives determined that Gonzalez had been fatally shot at a different location, put in the car he had borrowed from his girlfriend and driven to the townhouse complex.
