A Los Angeles man arrested Thursday night by police in Port Orchard is wanted in California for the murder of his live-in girlfriend, according to the U.S. Marshal’s Office.
The body of Dina Canale, 36, of Reseda, Calif., was found Sept. 21 in a storage shed at her home. She’d been reported missing to the Los Angeles Police Department Sept. 5, marshals said.
Police determined that Canale’s live-in boyfriend, Mark Allen Steffen, 57, had fled to Washington around the time of her disappearance, and requested the help of the U.S. Marhsal’s area fugitive task force.
On Sept. 22, a warrant charging Steffen with homicide was issued in Los Angeles, marshals said.
