Police said Trimble's home was ransacked, and her phone and prescription drugs were stolen.

Police found Trimble's body with zip ties around her ankles and around her ankles and a shirt wrapped on the zip ties. The shirt's armpit-areas had DNA that came back to Marta Ruano. There was also male DNA found at the crime scene, police said. 

Investigators contacted Ruano and found that her longtime boyfriend was Jorge Vazquez-Rivero. Rivero was deported twice and had been arrested for other crimes in the valley as well. The male DNA found at the crime scene was matched to Rivero. 

According to the police report, phones belonging to Ruano and Rivero were turned off from July 19 through July 20, the night before, and the day of the homicide. Investigators also said Ruano gave Rivero information that Trimble left her doors unlocked on cleaning days. 

When Rivero was questioned by police, his cell phone information was checked, and his number came back linked to a DEA investigation involving drugs being shipped through the mail. Rivero was also found with meth and 50 pounds of marijuana, police said. 

Rivero is charged with the murder of someone over the age of 65, kidnapping, robbery, burglary and drug charges. 

Mary Trimble was a well known violist who played for the Las Vegas Philharmonic Society and  the Nevada Symphony.
