Authorities have identified a second body removed from the backyard of a "drug house" in the unincorporated area of Lennox.

Investigators say it is the body of Gabriela Stein, wife of homeowner Daniel Stein, whose body was discovered about a week ago in the same yard.

Gabriela Stein's body was found Saturday afternoon at the house near Inglewood Avenue and 112th Street.

Gabriela Stein went missing about a month after Stein's mother reported him missing Dec. 17.

Marcos Lomeli, 26, who lived at the house, was arrested Wednesday in connection with several crimes unconnected to the bodies, although he could be charged with murder as soon as Tuesday, sheriff's deputies said.

Anyone with information about this case was urged to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS.
