Almost two months after discovering a body underneath an overpass in Colorado Springs, a man has been arrested for murder.

Walter Joe Martin, 36, was taken into custody Thursday afternoon.

The 36-year-old Colorado Springs man is charged with second-degree murder for the death of Timothy Jordan, whose body was found underneath the I-25 and Cimarron overpass in late January.

According to police, an anonymous tip led to the discovery of Jordan's body on Jan. 28. The body was found near the creek bed under the northbound on-ramp, showing obvious signs of trauma. The death was later ruled a homicide.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for Martin Thursday. Details about what led to the identification of Martin as a suspect have not been released at this time.
