Chad Norris, 33, was arrested on a second-degree murder charge in the presumed death of 45-year-old Jason Johnson, and Norris' wife has also been arrested for allegedly helping cover up the evidence.
Tempe police put out a missing-person alert on Tuesday, after Johnson didn't show up to work on Monday, and had missed several appointments with friends and family over the weekend.
Police say Chad and Tamara Norris were arrested the next day.
According to Tempe police, investigators started questioning employees at the Tempe location of Johnson and Norris' business, Scottsdale Auto Collision Center, near Priest Drive and Elliot Road.
Police learned that Norris and Johnson had been in an argument the last time Johnson was seen, which was September 14.
According to court documents obtained by New Times, nobody at the shop knew what the argument was about, but Johnson was known to get upset about the progress of the shop's renovation, which had been going on for three months.
