Police have made an arrest in the murder of a woman who was found stabbed to death in a Burbank home.

Brandi Carrasco, 35, was found dead on Sunday night in a house in the 1900 block of Richard Street in Burbank where she had been staying from time to time, the L.A. Times reports. Carrasco's body was discovered in a bedroom at around 10 p.m. after police were called to the scene. Carrasco had been slashed several times in her torso with a knife.

Police first arrested Brian Thomas Lowe, 49, who lives with his mother in the home where Carrasco was found, because they say he made several contradictory statements during questioning. On Tuesday, however, police arrested Timothy Aguilar Andrade, a 28-year-old Hesperia man who police say was dating Carrasco. According to City News Service, Burbank Police Officer Joshua Kendrick said that "Andrade provided significant information to investigators to confirm he acted alone in the murder of [Carrasco]. Andrade also provided information to investigators that led them to the recovery of what is believed to be the knife used in the murder."

An anonymous woman whose relative lives near the home told the Times that she frequently sees a number of different people coming and going from the house.
