MAYER, Ariz. -

PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in northern Arizona say a Mayer man who is suspected of killing his live-in girlfriend has been found dead.

Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say 29-year-old William Hewitt is believed to have killed 38-year-old Kristina Webb. Her body was found about 1:30 p.m. Friday in a remote area south of Mayer.

Authorities say she suffered a gunshot wound and her 5-year-old son witnessed the shooting but the child was unharmed. The boy is now in protective custody.

A homicide warrant was issued for Hewitt's arrest, and authorities said earlier Saturday that they were continuing to search for him.

The sheriff's office said in a statement Saturday evening that a deputy spotted the suspect's pickup truck in Prescott at about 6 p.m. Hewitt was then found dead inside from an apparent gunshot wound.
