ARVADA, Colo. — An arrest warrant was obtained for a suspect wanted in connection to a homicide last month, the Arvada Police Department said Wednesday.

Christopher Moffat, 36, is currently being held in the Garfield County Jail on unrelated charges.

Officers found the vehicle parked on the curb line of Ralston Place.
