TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a suspect is in custody in connection with the death of a woman whose body was found in a wash on Tucson's east side.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say 49-year-old Michael Donald Norris is being held on suspicion of first-degree murder.

The body of 51-year-old Debra Ann Scotko was discovered Tuesday night in the Pantano Wash. Tucson police officers responded to a 911 call about a woman in distress.

The wash is in the county's jurisdiction and deputies and officers searched the area for a man believed to be involved with the woman's death.

They say Norris was found a short time later and detained.

He was booked Wednesday into the county's Adult Detention Center. Authorities didn't immediately know if Norris has a lawyer yet.
