A man who police suspect of killing a woman the same day he was released from prison was arrested Friday at a Tucson hotel.

Police and members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force took David James Bohart, 34, into custody at a hotel in the 7000 block of South Tucson Boulevard on suspicion of killing Marika L. Jones, 49, according to a news release from Tucson Police Department.

The Arizona Department of Corrections confirmed for police that Bohart had been released from prison Monday, Nov. 19, and failed to check into a court-ordered treatment facility in Cottonwood. When he didn’t show up, a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Bohart was booked into a Pima County jail on the warrant and on suspicion of second-degree murder, the news release stated.

On Wednesday, Nov. 21, Tucson police received a call just after 3 p.m. from a man who identified himself as an out-of-state attorney, advising them that someone was either seriously injured or dead at a residence in the 5700 block of East 24th Street, according to the news release.
