LAS VEGAS – Two women were arrested Tuesday in the fatal shooting of an Altadena man, and a 4-year-old boy who had been cared for by the man was found unharmed, police said. Vanessa Ochoa, 22, and Mesha Arshaz Dean, 25, were taken into custody without incident, Las Vegas police Lt. Ted Lee said. The women had been sought for two days as authorities broadcast Amber Alert bulletins across California and Nevada. Lee said the women were unarmed when found in a West Las Vegas neighborhood in a car driven by a man whose name was not disclosed. Ochoa’s son, Manaen Miles, was turned over to Clark County child-protection officials. “He was fine as far as we could tell,” Lee said. “He didn’t need any medical attention.” Ochoa and Dean were detained as fugitives, Lee said. They were being questioned by Los Angeles County detectives in the Sunday slaying of Monroe Miles, 32, the boy’s paternal uncle, and about the abduction of the boy from Miles’ home in Altadena, a foothill suburb northeast of Los Angeles. Amber Alerts were issued in California and Nevada because sheriff’s investigators believed the women were headed toward Ochoa’s last known address, in Henderson, Nev. Las Vegas police, acting on a tip from investigators in Los Angeles, found the silver Mitsubishi Diamante sedan that Ochoa and Dean were believed to have been driving parked near a home in the West Las Vegas neighborhood, Lee said. Police were watching when the women, the boy and a man emerged from the house on Tuesday and got into another car. They were arrested about 12:30 p.m., several blocks away. Lee said an earlier tip, spurred by the Amber Alert bulletins, prompted a Las Vegas police officer to check the silver Mitsubishi on Monday. But investigators did not know the vehicle identification number of the car being sought and could not tell if it was the one. “It was just a plain car, the same make, model and color,” Lee said, adding that the car had no license plate but a paper one. After the arrest, the man was questioned and released, Lee said. His name was not made public. “He wasn’t involved,” Lee said of the driver. “He was just in the car.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ochoa “shot and killed a relative who was caring for the child, took the child and left,” a sheriff’s spokesman said in a flier. Another printed statement from the department claimed Dean “has been identified as having been involved in the commission of this crime.” The nature of Dean’s relationship with Ochoa was not immediately known. Both women were sought on felony warrants charging them with homicide and child abduction, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Oscar Butao said. It was not yet known when the women would face an extradition hearing in Las Vegas. Authorities said Miles was found shot in the torso in a home where he lived with the boy’s grandparents.
