The Scottsdale Police Department has arrested 28-year-old Edward Nichole Hughes on felony charges related to his involvement in the death of 29-year-old, Scottsdale resident, Julian Gion Franco Gonzales.

On May 23, Phoenix police discovered the victim deceased at 1200 Galvin Parkway, officials say.
