Washoe County sheriff's deputies have added a murder charge for a suspect arrested in the suspicious death of a man at Lake Tahoe.

The sheriff's office says officers found a man dead in Incline Village on Tuesday when they were called to a residence near Southwood and Tahoe boulevards at about 10 a.m.

The suspect identified as 44-year-old Ismael Resendiz-Moreno was detained at the scene and originally booked into the Washoe County Jail on Tuesday on suspicion of batter with a deadly weapon.

Sheriff's spokesman Bob Harmon says an open murder charge was added on Wednesday.

Resendiz-Moreno was being held without bail on Thursday. It's not clear if he has a lawyer or will be appointed one at a pending court appearance.

The victim has not been identified. No other details have been released.
