A Marine already charged with illegal possession of an assault rifle was arrested today on suspicion of murder in the killing of Marine wife Brittany Killgore.
Staff Sgt. Louis Ray Perez, 45, was arrested on the new charge at Vista Detention, where he is being held.
Killgore, 22, of Fallbrook, Calif., disappeared April 13, after telling friends she was going out in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. Her body was found four days later, dumped near Lake Skinner in Riverside County, Calif.
