Man indicted months after body found in burning Phoenix dumpster

A 23-year-old man has been indicted for first-degree murder months after a body was found inside a burning dumpster in Phoenix.

The gruesome discovery was made on March 21 near 11th Avenue and Madison Street in "The Zone," a massive homeless encampment downtown. 

The remains have still not been identified due to the severity of the burns, but authorities believe the victim lived in the encampment.

Two men - 18-year-old Isaiah Baskin and 22-year-old Larry Scott - had been arrested days after the crime. They were allegedly caught on security camera pushing the contents of a shopping cart into the dumpster before a third suspect set it on fire.
