FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Homicide detectives with the Fresno County Sheriff's Office have arrested a 22-year-old man for the brutal murder of his girlfriend.

Around 10 p.m. Monday, deputies were called to a home on South Hayes and West Parlier avenues near the community of Raisin City.

After starting their investigation, deputies found evidence that led them to suspect Wright had murdered his girlfriend.

Deputies searched an orchard two miles away and found a dismembered woman's body.

Detectives, along with the Fresno County Sheriff's Office Crime Scene Unit, conducted interviews and gathered evidence that led to Wright's arrest.

The Coroner's Office believes the 24-year-old victim is Samantha Sharp of Porterville. However, her identity still needs to be confirmed through an official process.

Wright was booked into the Fresno County Jail on a charge of murder. His bail is set at $1 million.
