LOGAN -- Four months to the day after investigators identified the body of 33-year-old Tiffany Jarman, they made an arrest in the case. The man they believe to be her killer is 40-year-old Robert Ferretti.

The Cache County Sheriff's Office says Ferretti was arrested in Pueblo, Colo., Friday afternoon. He became the main person of interest in January, although investigators declined to pro provide details of what pointed the investigation his way.

Ferretti worked as a handyman in Salt Lake and Summit counties, and investigators believe he and Jarman were friends at one point.

Jarman's body was discovered in November next to the river in Logan Canyon. She'd been shot in the head.

The sheriff's office says telling her family about today's arrest was a relief.

"They were elated, you know. It brings a lot of closure to them. They've been dealing with this and the fact that whoever did this, victimized their family member, is out wandering around, could possibly do it again," said Cache County sheriff's Lt. Matt Bilodeau.

Jarman's mother, Becky Jarman, told us over the phone, "I've got a hole in my heart where my daughter used to be. I'll never get to hold her again, see her smile. And I'm just so thankful that they worked so hard."

Cache County detectives are on their way to Pueblo. They hope to learn more about the motive and Ferretti's relationship with Jarman as well as what led him to Pueblo.

Ferretti has been booked into jail on homicide charges. He could be extradited back to Utah as early as Tuesday.
