A woman and man are now in custody in connection with the killing of a man found shot to death inside a garage of a home on the Pala Indian Reservation, officials confirmed Wednesday.
More than six months ago – on March 2 – Bradley Lynn Trujillo, 44, was found dead from gunshot wounds inside a home's garage in the 1300 block of Robles Way.
According to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department (SDSO), the home was also occupied by Anthony James Boles, 33, and Tyann Louise Allen, 30, when deputies discovered Trujillo.
Boles and Allen were questioned. They told investigators they had come home from dinner that night to find Trujillo dead in the garage.
The SDSO said investigators established probable cause arrest both Boles and Allen on suspicion of murder in the case. However, charges were not filed at the time and both were released from custody.
Over the past few months, SDSO homicide detectives have worked to develop new leads and collect more evidence on this case. They were able to receive search warrants for both Boles and Allen, the sheriff’s department said.
On Wednesday morning, officials with the San Diego County Fugitive Task Force located Boles and Allen in a hotel in Temecula. They were both arrested for outstanding warrants.
Allen is facing one count of first-degree murder in the killing of Trujillo. She was booked into the Las Colinas Detention Facility and her bail was set at $2 million. Boles faces one count of being an accessory to the crime. He was booked into the Vista Detention Facility.
Both suspects are scheduled to appear in court Thursday.
The investigation is ongoing. No further details, including motive for the murder, were immediately released. Anyone with information on the case can call the SDSO’s Homicide Detail at (858) 974-2321 or (858) 565-5200, or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
