LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police say they've solved the case of a severed human head found two years ago near the Hollywood sign.

Police said Monday they've arrested 38-year-old Gabriel Campos Martinez for the 2012 murder of 66-year-old Hervey Coronado Medellin of Los Angeles. Martinez was arrested in San Antonio, Texas, on Sunday with the help of local authorities and is being held without bail while he awaits extraditing proceedings.

Two women discovered what turned out to be Medellin's head while walking several dogs through a trail in Griffith Park. A cadaver dog named Indiana Bones and investigators helped find more body parts, including hands and feet, near the same area where the head was discovered.
