The man accused of killing his sister's boyfriend in Tucson earlier this year is back in Pima County and facing a first-degree murder charge.

According to records from the Pima County Jail, Vincent Antonio Detwiler is being held on a $1 million bond.

Authorities said the 21-year-old Detwiler shot Mark Garity in the head while they were in a vehicle with a third person. The shooting happened Feb. 27 and the 29-year-old Garity was found on East Monte Vista Drive, which is near Fort Lowell and Club Road.
