Sheriff's Homicide detectives have arrested a third suspect in connection with the death of a man found fatally shot earlier this year. Wendy Fong, 33, was taken into custody yesterday and booked at the Sacramento County Main Jail on a single count of murder. She is ineligible for bail at this time.

Andrew Jeffries, 33, was arrested on April 25th of this year and remains in custody, along with Robert Haven, also 33, was arrested on June 25th. Further investigation led detectives to Fong as a suspect, as well.
