The San Luis Obispo Sheriff's Office on Tuesday found the remains of a missing rural Paso Robles woman and arrested a house painter they believe killed her and dumped her body.

Sheriff Ian Parkinson on Wednesday announced investigators had recovered the body of Nancy Woodrum, 62, who was reported missing from her home on the 5800 block of El Pharo Drive north of Creston on May 5.

Detectives arrested Carlo Alberto Fuentes Flores, 42, of Paso Robles, who allegedly killed Woodrum, Parkinson said at a press conference.

Fuentes Flores did painting work on Woodrum's property and had "limited" contact with her, Parkinson said.
