(KSL News) A man arrested in connection with the murder of a Washington County man will be in court later today.

The Deseret Morning News is reporting authorities have arrested Edgar Navarro and booked him into the Purgatory County Jail.

Authorities believe he is the person responsible for the death of Mark Batin.

Last month, Batin's body was found in the desert near the Utah-Arizona border. He was shot to death.

Investigators say a "dispute" between the two men lead to the shooting.
