SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Authorities reportedly arrested a  42-year-old man Friday on a murder charge after he allegedly shot a man, cut his throat and then stored the dead body in a 55-gallon drum in his backyard.

George Oscar Pena remains in the Bexar County Jail on a $150,000 bond. Police announced his arrest on Friday, though few details on the alleged slaying were immediately available.

A witness reportedly called police on Friday morning with information about a killing. She said she was with Pena when he allegedly shot the victim, identified as Juan Ramiro Ramirez, Thursday night at Pena’s home in the 1600 block of Allende.

The witness reportedly told police Pena stuffed Ramirez’s body into a 55-gallon drum and asked her to help him get rid of it, the affidavit states.

The woman said she told Pena the tailgate on her truck wasn’t working and left. She then immediately called police.

Within 40 minutes, police arrived at Pena’s home asking to speak with him. Pena reportedly walked out and told an officer, “he needed to get something off his chest and what he did was wrong,” the affidavit states.

Police reportedly questioned him further and Pena allegedly admitted to “shooting and cutting the throat of” Ramirez and then storing the body in a 55-gallon drum and burning several items of evidence.

Pena reportedly told police he believed Ramirez “befriended him and had stolen several items from his home in the past.”

Officers reportedly found the 55-gallon drum in Pena’s backyard and Ramirez’s body was found inside the drum. Paramedics reportedly pronounced him dead just after 10 a.m.
