Tevin Johnson was booked on suspicion of open murder on Monday in the July 19 death of 37-year-old Amber Morris of Moreno Valley, California at the Circus Circus hotel-casino.

Police say Johnson had been arrested the day after Morris’ body was found on an unrelated charge and detectives subsequently developed probable cause to arrest him for the slaying.

He previously was being held at the Washoe County Jail on $150,000 cash-only-bond on a charge of illegally obtaining or using another person’s identification, but he’s now being held without bail.

It’s not clear if he has a lawyer or will be appointed one at an upcoming court appearance.
