A Clovis man already behind bars can now add murder to the list of charges he faces.
24-year-old Aaron Quinones was already accused of arson before police named him as their suspect in the murder of a 54-year-old woman who died in a house fire.
Fire crews found her body in the bedroom of her home with a large wound on her neck.
Police waited until Thursday to charge Quinones.
They were waiting on forensic tests from the crime scene to prove Quinones was there.
