LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — A man and a woman have been arrested in the 2006 murder of a 35-year-old mother who had been found beaten and shot to death in a vehicle in South Los Angeles.

Taja Jones had left her job at a mortgage company in Santa Monica on April 20, 2006, but never picked up her 14-year-old son later in the day as scheduled.

Her body was found five days later in her vehicle, which had been parked in a South L.A. neighborhood. The front windshield had been smashed in, and her body was found in the back seat. Jones had been beaten and shot, according to the coroner’s office.

Jones and her brother, Woodrow Hart, had inherited about $1 million from their mother, who had died the previous September. When Jones went missing, co-workers had said they last saw her heading to a bank after discovering that much of her share of the inheritance had disappeared from her account.
