Police in Los Angeles said Monday they had arrested a suspect in the slaying of Bishop David O'Connell, who was found dead Saturday afternoon at his archdiocese-owned home in the Hacienda Heights neighborhood with at least one bullet in his upper body. Los Angeles Sheriff Robert Luna said a crucial tip and surveillance video had led police to Carlos Medina, 65, the husband of O'Connell's housekeeper. A search of Medina's house uncovered two firearms, which are now being tested to see if either was the murder weapon.
