The grandson of a woman whose body was found inside her east Mesa home last month has been arrested in Florida.
Maricopa County Sheriff's Office announced Wednesday that 43-year-old Reginald Gardner III was taken into custody in a Miami neighborhood.
Authorities say Gardner is awaiting extradition to Arizona and will likely face charges of second-degree murder.
They say Gardner had been living with 88-year-old Lola Pershall, whose body was discovered April 18 by deputies conducting a welfare check at her home.
Authorities say Pershall died from a gunshot wound inside her home and there were no signs of forced entry or signs of a struggle.
Pershall's vehicle was missing when deputies discovered her body. The car was found April 19 in Houston and authorities began searching for Gardner.
