Police say they waited until DNA test results of the victim's blood could be linked to Quinones. He is also charged with Second Degree Felony Arson, a 2nd Degree Felony Robbery charge, and 2 counts of 3rd Degree Felony Tampering With Evidence.

The case is now being forwarded to the 9th Judicial District Attorney's Office for prosecution.
