Los Angeles Police have arrested two 22-year-old men on suspicion of murder in the death of a UCLA sorority member found dead in her burning apartment near campus.

Police said Monday that forensic evidence and witness statements led to the weekend arrests of the two men in the killing of Andrea Delvesco.

Police say Delvesco’s body was found Sept. 21 by firefighters who extinguished the fire at her apartment in the Westwood neighborhood.

Police say Alberto Medina of Fresno and Eric Marquez of Westwood are each being held in the Van Nuys jail on a murder charge.

The Pi Beta Phi sorority says 21-year-old Delvesco was one of its members.

An autopsy is expected to determine if the woman died from the fire or before it started.
