TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Authorities are searching for a second suspect after police arrested one man in possible connection to a November homicide in which a homeless man's body was found floating in the Santa Cruz River.

Authorities identified one suspect as Shane Blevins, 36, who police located in the Pima County Jail on Feb. 18 for unrelated charges.

Blevins, the suspect and the victim, identified as 34-year-old Owen McNutt, were homeless at the time of the incident, according to Sgt. Chris Widmer with the Tucson Police Department. Widmer said the suspects lured McNutt into a wash near Riverside Drive and St. Mary's Road on Nov. 22, where they allegedly assaulted and robbed him. The cause of death was determined to be blunt force trauma.

One of the people involved had prior gang affiliations but the Tucson Police Gang Unit determined the incident was not gang-related.

Blevins faces charges of first degree murder, felony murder in the first degree, armed robbery and aggravated robbery in addition to his previous charges.

The investigation is ongoing.
