Arrest made in stabbing death of Claremont man

A Pomona man has been arrested on suspicion of stabbing a Claremont man to death. 

Jonathan Marsh, 54, was arrested February 9, days after 40-year-old Matthew Musick was found dead in the rear parking lot of 160 W. Willow Street in Pomona, the Pomona Police Department said in a release.

The address matches up to the Smart and Final on Willow Street and Garey Avenue, across the street from Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center.

Mr. Musick, who was found on January 25, was pronounced dead at the scene. Officers at the scene received information that a Caucasian male suspect was last seen riding away from the scene on a bicycle.

Based on evidence gathered and several tips received by officers, Mr. Marsh was located and arrested after getting enough information during an interview, police said.

Mr. Marsh has been charged with murder, and his bail was set at $2.5 million. He is facing 70 years to life in prison if convicted.
