A 29-year-old transient has been charged in connection with the death of a woman who was found in a West Hollywood dumpster, officials said Wednesday.
Abdullah Tario Camran was arrested Tuesday in Pomona and faces one count of murder in the death of Joie Nicole Kinney, 28, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.
The two were in a “dating relationship” when Kinney was killed on July 6, the DA’s office said.
Details of how she died or a motive behind the killing remain unknown.
Kinney’s body was found in a dumpster behind a now-closed location of Jerry’s Famous Deli, in the 8700 block of Beverly Boulevard.
Camran’s bail was set $2 million and he faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in prison if he is convicted.
