FONTANA, Calif. (AP) - Fontana police used a search warrant and cadaver dog to find the body of a missing San Diego woman buried in the yard of a man who was arrested and booked for investigation of murder.

Alejandra Carrion Gutierrez, 27, hadn't been heard from since New Year's Eve. Her family reported her missing on Jan. 2. Her unoccupied car was found in Fontana on Jan. 10.

On Thursday, detectives went to see 40-year-old Cesar Rosales at his home on Reseda Avenue in Fontana. Detectives say Rosales knew Gutierrez, but their relationship was part of the investigation.

The dog led authorities to Gutierrez's body. During an interview with police, Rosales admitted that he killed Gutierrez and buried her. Detectives did not give a motive or say how she was killed.
