HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities have made an arrest in the suspected MS-13 killing of a Long Island teenager.

A criminal complaint says David Sosa-Guevara was among a group that fatally struck 15-year-old Angel Soler with a machete numerous times last July.

Soler's remains were found last month in a 27-acre woodland in Roosevelt, in Nassau County.

It was one of three sets of remains found in about a five-mile area over the course of nine days.

A law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity, tells The Associated Press it's believed all three were killed by the MS-13 street gang.

The official could not speak publicly because of the ongoing investigation.

Soler was held without bail at his arraignment Friday. There was no immediate comment from his lawyer.
