Suspects arrested after alleged Tempe drug deal ends in murder

Two suspects are now behind bars after an alleged drug deal became deadly in Tempe.

The investigation began after officers had discovered a body in an alley near Southern and Priest Drive while responding to a shooting call on July 28.

The victim was identified as 19-year-old Ki'Marion Woods.

Detectives say they discovered a contact was listed in Woods' phone as "Psycho Meds," and traced it to a man named Javier Cruz.

A message showed the victim had planned to buy marijuana from Cruz, court documents said. 

Cruz was booked into jail on charges including first-degree murder and marijuana sales.

Police also arrested Christian Renteria, who reportedly hid Cruz in a Peoria hotel room before he was taken into custody. 

Renteria reportedly confessed to police that he shot Woods before leaving the scene. He faces charges including first-degree murder, unlawful discharge of a firearm, endangerment and marijuana sales.
