The body of a woman found buried in a shallow grave in a back yard on Monday, October 6, has been identified as that of 65-year old Patricia Bynog. Pima County Sheriff's investigators say that Bynog died of strangulation.

Bynog's son, 32-year old Jacob Bynog has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder. Deputies first went to the home in the 8400 block of South Filmore Road on Saturday, October 4, when a family member reported that she hadn't heard from her mother in several days. A search warrant was issued on October 6, and Patricia Bynog's body was discovered that afternoon.
