Grants police arrested a man in connection to a homicide that occurred last week in the Cibola County community.
Victor Charlie, 32, was arrested and charged with the death of Keevin John, 40.
On April 5, John was found dead near San Jose Drive in Grants, police said.
Grants police said Charlie reportedly got into an argument over alcohol that escalated into a fight with John.
John, a Crownpoint, NM native and known transient in Grants, reportedly died from the injuries sustained in the fight, police said.
Witnesses said Charlie, from a Laguna, NM, was seen with John before his death. He was charged with second degree murder.
