Another person was arrested Wednesday night in connection to the slaying of 19-year-old Aaron Salgado, Oklahoma City police said.

Viridiana Ochoa, 21, was arrested on a complaint of first degree murder on Wednesday night at the Hospitality Inn on NW 39 Street and Portland Ave. Ochoa surrendered to officers in the hotel lobby.

She joins three others who were arrested in the last two days for the same complaint. Edmundo Cossio, his sister Corina Cossio, and Roque "Rocky" Beltran have all been charged with murder in the first degree for the slaying of Salgado.

Police found Salgado laying on a curb in the 4900 block of S. Independence Ave. last September. He had one gunshot wound and died at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center the next day.
