Sanchez is the second person to be arrested in connection to the killing. In late December, 20-year-old Nuu Faalogoifo was arrested in relation to Dixon’s killing, and remains in County Jail.

Faalogoifo, who was charged with murder, has pleaded not guilty in the case. He is the alleged shooter, according to court records, and is next due in court May 30 for a preliminary hearing.

He remains in County Jail on $6 million bail.
