Suspect arrested in mom's death

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Police say they've arrested the man who killed a mother of five in 2012.

On New Year's Day, authorities found the body of Edlyn Villegas Munoz under a bridge.

They say 27-year-old Francisco Lopez attacked the mother.

He then asked a friend to help move her body.  His friend declined but told people what Lopez asked him.

The people he told then tipped off police.

"The only thing is it, doesn't really make a difference, like we said. We do feel a little bit better that he is in jail, and they have him already. But we still have to move on the same."

Police arrested Lopez in New Jersey.

Investigators say Lopez is also a suspect in another case in Pasadena involving the rape of a teenage girl.
