An Arizona man who police say killed a woman delivering food to him was arrested, according to CBS 5 in Glendale.
Rusty French, 62, was arrested in connection to the death of 62-year-old Pamela Rae Martinez on June 23.
Police responded to a report of a car that had run off the road into a landscaping area near Bell Road and 61st Avenue in Glendale at approximately 7:30 p.m. on June 11, CBS 5 reported. Police said the airbags didn't go off and it was apparently a low-impact crash.
A witness told police that Martinez was parked on the side of the road with French standing next to her car. The witness said French then got into his van, park next to her car and drive off. Police later found that Martinez had just finished a fast-food delivery and took a picture of French for some reason, according to CBS 5.

Police determined that Martinez had been shot, and questioned French at his home during a search on June 23. Officers showed him the picture of himself and he admitted it was him but said that he "must have blacked out" at the time, CBS 5 reported. Detectives found several guns at French's home, including one that matched up with the gun used in the shooting, according to ballistic tests.
Police say French and Martinez did not know each other, according to CBS 5.
French was booked and charged with second-degree murder.
