APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. (AP) -- A 45-year-old man is facing felony homicide charges in connection with a body found underneath a mobile home in Apache Junction

Daniel Scott Flomer was taken into custody at 10 p.m. Sunday in the 1700 block of North Valley.

Apache Junction SWAT officers and the US Marshal Service Violent Felony Squad was called in when Flomer refused to comply with orders to come out of a residence.

Flomer was originally arrested on unrelated felony warrants and is now facing additional felony charges relating to the found body.

The body is believed to be that of a missing woman but the remains have not been positively identified by the Medical Examiner.

Residents called police Saturday to report a foul odor coming from the mobile home near Ironwood Drive and Apache Trail.

Police say the body was too far decomposed to identify as being a man or a woman.

They are treating it as a suspicious death.

A woman living in the home was reported missing on Sept. 4, but authorities haven't released her name.

The Pinal County Medical Examiner will determine the identity of the body and cause of death.
