LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - The Los Angeles Police Department has arrested a third person in connection with the murder of a Las Vegas man whose body was found in a burned-out car in San Bernadino County on New Year's Eve.

33 Year-Old Davon Hickman was arrested in Palmdale following a traffic stop. 

Back in January, Jecory Kemp and Tyeshia James were arrested last month and charged with murder in the death of 44-year-old Jabar Anderson.

Anderson had been reported missing in Henderson back on New Year's Eve. His body was later discovered in a burned-out car near San Bernadino.

Police haven't said what the motive behind the killing was, but it's believed to be drug-related, as investigators say Anderson was connected to illegal narcotics activity.

Hickman faces charges of murder, conspiracy to commit robbery and robbery with a deadly weapon.
