Last week the body of a 9-year-old girl was discovered in a duffel bag on a hiking trail in Hacidenda Heights. The girl, Trinity J., is believed to have been murdered on March 1 by Emiel Hunt, 38.
Hunt has been charged with one count of murder and was arraigned on March 12. He has a previous conviction of child abuse from San Diego County in 2005. His bail has been set at $2 million.
Hunt faces a possible sentence of 50 years to life in state prison if convicted.
