A few days after the discovery of Angela Kukawski’s body, the Los Angeles Police Department issued a statement that a suspect has been arrested in connection to the case. Jason Barker, 49, was arrested on suspicion of murder and was booked at the Van Nuys Jail (via the Daily Mail). Barker was Kukawski’s boyfriend, and authorities believe that he killed Kukawski at her home located in Sherman Oaks and transported her body to Patricia Ave. where it was eventually discovered.

According to a report from the New York Post, investigators found Barker at an apartment located on the street where Kukawski’s vehicle was found. The owner of the apartment was Barker’s relative, and he was arrested without incident. Barker has been charged with one count of torture and one count of premeditated murder, per the Los Angeles Times. He is currently being held in jail on a $3 million bail, and his arraignment is scheduled to take place on January 12.
