A man is in custody for the murder and assault of a 45 year-old woman in 2012.

Twenty-one year-old Daniel Reyes was arrested Saturday night for the capital murder of Elizabeth Bermea.

Police say she'd been sexually assaulted before her body was found near the corner of Micklejohn and N. Navidad on January of 2012.

Reyes was picked up by police at his home in the 100 block of Jeffrey for questioning, and a short time later he was arrested.

Forensic evidence from the medical examiner's office gave detectives a break in the case and led to Reyes' arrest.
