[Ed. – Sounds kinda like prison failed to rehabilitate him.]
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.
Bohart remained in jail Saturday. Online court records don’t list an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
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.
