    Authorities have arrested a man in San Diego County suspected of killing a woman whose body was found at a northern California campground last month.

    El Cajon police say two of their officers and four deputies from Tuolumne County -- where the body was found -- arrested 39-year-old Pete Frank Dominguez on Monday in Santee.

    Police say Dominguez was believed to have been living at River Ranch Campground with 42-year-old Christina Marie Pierce, whose body was found there Aug. 26.

    Pierce had been reported missing by her mother on April 23. She previously lived in El Cajon.

    An autopsy determined she died of asphyxiation.
