(EVANSVILLE) - The remains of a woman found dead in Evansville Friday is that of a Daviess County woman.

An autopsy determined that 41-year-old Erica M. Bradfield, of Washington, died of a gunshot wound to the head according to Vanderburgh County Coroner. Her death has been ruled as a homicide.

Police found her remains in multiple trash bags behind the home of Earl Martin. Martin, 38, was arrested Tuesday and remains jailed on preliminary charges of murder, robbery resulting in serious bodily injury, attempted murder with a firearm and kidnapping while hijacking a vehicle in connection with the shooting death of 20-year-old Christopher Hoefling and shooting of 19-year-old Brandon Waldroup in an apparent marijuana deal.

Martin's mother, Donna Stephens, called 911 Friday morning after her grandson found the remains in the backyard of the home at 906 Bellemeade Ave.

Police said there's no connection on whether Martin was involved in Bradfield's death but he is considered a suspect.
