BULLHEAD CITY, AZ (AP) -

Five people have been arrested in northwestern Arizona in homicide that authorities say was made to look like a hit-and-run accident.

Bullhead City police say 22-year-old Jade Tracy and 19-year-old Eric Durand are being held on suspicion of second-degree murder in the Sept. 29 death of Michael Clayton Clark.

They say 51-year-old Todd Tracy and his 18-year-old son Cole Tracy were being held on suspicion of hindering prosecution and destroying evidence while 44-year-old Tiffany Ellis is being held on suspicion of hindering prosecution.

Clark died Sept. 30 in a Nevada hospital.

Police say Jade Tracy and Durand are accused of severely beating the 50-year-old Clark and dumping his body on a Bullhead City road. They say Jade Tracy allegedly was angry with Clark for disrespecting Ellis, his father's girlfriend.
