Sheriff's office: Body found in well, man arrested


Pima County sheriff's detectives have arrested a man in the death of another man whose body was found in an abandoned well in a rural area a day after he was reported missing.

The Sheriff's Department says detectives found the body 25 feet down the well in the desert west of Tucson on Wednesday while investigating the disappearance of a Three Points man who had been reported missing Tuesday afternoon.

The Sheriff's Department says 51-year-old Donald Stewart was questioned and then arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder. It's not immediately known whether he has an attorney.

The victim's name was not released immediately but the Sheriff's Department says the body is believed to be that of the person reported missing.
