DALLAS (AP) The 17-year-old cousin of a 5-year-old Dallas girl found dead in vacant apartment has been arrested in her death.

Dallas police said Monday that Angel Lizandro Sanches-Zenteno has been arrested and charged with capital murder in the death of Kathrine Alejandra Gonzalez, whose body was found Sunday afternoon. The medical examiner ruled the initial cause of death as strangulation.

Sanches-Zenteno was being held in Dallas jail Monday on no bond. Jail records did not list an attorney.

Gonzalez had been reported missing by her aunt, who last saw her around 11:30 a.m. Sunday playing outside with her siblings. They were being watched by her uncle at the apartment complex while their parents worked.

Sanches-Zenteno's apartment was next door to the one where her body was found.
