HOUSTON (AP) Houston police have arrested a third suspect in the April death of a man allegedly doused with gasoline and set on fire.

Marcus Washington was being held without bond Friday on a murder charge. Online Houston City Jail records did not list an attorney for Washington, who was arrested Thursday.

Police have not released a possible motive or the name of the victim who was attacked outside an apartment complex on April 21. He died two days later at a hospital. Police have said they're trying to locate his relatives in El Salvador.

Two other suspects were arrested in May and remain in custody on murder charges.
