Video cameras and searches helped authorities arrest Jon Starkweather, 63, on charges of murder, conspiracy to commit a crime and robbery.

Authorities learned that Starkweather recently had his daughter, 28-year-old Sabrina Starkweather and her boyfriend, 22-year-old Kasual McGuire-Meder stay at his residence.

McGuire-Meder was already in a nearby Nevada jail on other charges. Tuolumne County deputies booked him for suspicion of murder, conspiracy to commit a crime, robbery and taking a vehicle without consent.

Lindsey's Jeep was missing for days before his body was found, authorities said. It's not clear if Sabrina Starkweather has it.
