PHOENIX - The brother of a recent homicide victim has been arrested on unrelated charges.

Phoenix police said Christopher Lincon, 19, is the brother of victim Angel Jaquez and the uncle of his deceased son, Xavier Daniel Jaquez.

Angel's body was found Monday evening at his apartment near 29th Street and Broadway Road and Xavier's body was discovered the next morning in an alley behind a home near 65th Avenue and Indian School Road.

Lincon was booked into jail on drug charges.

Phoenix police said they do consider Lincon a suspect in both homicides, but he has not been charged in connection with the crimes.

Police continue to investigation both deaths and Sgt. Trent Crump said the arrest has not narrowed the focus of the investigation.

Anyone with information about these homicides is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
