Kern County Sheriff’s detectives have arrested a woman for allegedly murdering her boyfriend in 2013.

Earlier this year, detectives received information that implicated Elizabeth Guillen in the killing of Oscar Garcia, according to a news release. KCSO obtained a search warrant for Guillen’s house Tuesday and she was detained and interviewed, the release stated. She was arrested on suspicion of murder and booked into Kern County jail pending court proceedings, KCSO said.

Garcia’s body was discovered Aug. 11, 2013, by Kern County firefighters while putting out a fire on Bear Mountain Boulevard and General Beale Road. Immediately afterward, KCSO detectives determined Garcia’s death was a murder.
