NBC7

Stewart (L) and Dorsey were last seen in Lake Elsinore.

Authorities have arrested a man wanted in the mysterious death of his girlfriend, whose body was found in a suitcase at a Poway motel.

Riverside County prosecutors say Mexican authorities and the FBI arrested 28-year-old Joseph David Dorsey near Rosarito Tuesday.

Christine Stewart, 47, of Canyon Lake was reported missing August 6. Two days later, her body was found at a Best Western in the 13800 block of Poway Road.

Stewart was last seen in the Lake Elsinore area with Dorsey.

Soon after the discovery of Stewart's body, officials put out a request for the public's help finding Dorsey driving a dark blue 1994 Ford Explorer sport utility vehicle.

Investigators say Dorsey will face a charge of murder.
