Cameron Tyler Wright, 22, of Fresno, was charged Thursday with murdering and dismembering his girlfriend, Samantha Sharp, 24, near Raisin City.
He remains in Fresno County jail on a $1 million bond.
Homicide detectives with the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office arrested Wright after taking a domestic violence call Monday evening from a home in the 8300 block of South Hayes Avenue.
Deputies determined the victim was his girlfriend. They searched an orchard about two miles away and found a woman’s body, which had been dismembered.
The Fresno County District Attorney’s Office alleges that Wright stabbed Sharp to death and cut up her body in an attempt to hide her remains.
Because Wright has a prior “strike” conviction for a violent felony in 2019, he faces a sentence of 54 years to life if convicted of Sharp’s homicide. At the time of his arrest, Wright was on parole.
