A Hemet man was arrested in connection with the suspicious death of a Murrieta woman whose body was found inside her blazing apartment this week, a police lieutenant said today.
Marquise McGlown, 22, was held without bail on a felony parole violation but Murrieta Police Lt. Tony Conrad said McGlown is considered to be the prime suspect in the death of Shanae Christiana Wesley.
Wesley, 23, was found dead Wednesday morning by firefighters as they were dousing flames that had that swept through her unit at the Waterstone Apartments, 24850 Hancock Ave. in Murrieta.
A neighbor pulled Wesley’s 3-year- old son, who was also inside the burning apartment, out to safety, Conrad said.
The boy was released from a local hospital in good condition, but Conrad
did not say with whom the boy is staying.
Conrad did not specify how McGlown is allegedly tied to Wesley’s death
but said additional charges are expected to be filed against him as autopsy results and case findings are pending a review by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
McGlown was arrested Friday at a location in the 1000 block of Latham
Avenue in Hemet, jail records showed.
