BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) - Bakersfield police have arrested a man on suspicion of murder after finding human remains buried in the yards of two separate homes.
The Bakersfield Californian reports (http://bit.ly/OAWuc1 ) that 45-year-old Frank Valles was being held Thursday in connection with the remains, which have not been identified.
Detective Michael Coronado says police received a tip Tuesday that led them to one of the homes, where they found Valles.
After interrogating Frank Valles police searched another address for more remains, which they located.
The initial home that was searched belonged to Valles' estranged wife, Consuelo Valles, who had filed for divorce and had asked for a restraining order against her husband. She has not been arrested.
Police and the coroner's office were digging on the properties, checking for more human remains.
