A second arrest has been made in connection to a body that was found inside a burning SUV in Rancho Palos Verdes.

Authorities said Wednesday they arrested 18-year-old Jose Angel Martinez of Compton in connection with the murder of 42-year-old Long Beach resident Christopher Waters.

Waters' body was found last month in a burning SUV in the 30100 block of Miraleste Drive. A 17-year-old male turned himself in last week. The teen's name has not been released.

Martinez is being held on $1 million bail and is scheduled to be in court Friday.

There's no word on a motive or what relationship, if any, the suspects had to Waters.
