Investigators said at the time that they believed several robbers may have been scouring the site when Santee attempted to stop them. His family friends tell News 3 he was shot four times and severely beaten. Padilla had been arrested in September on charges unrelated to this investigation. LVMPD Homicide detectives re-booked him Monday on the following charges related to this case: murder with use of a deadly weapon; robbery with use of a deadly weapon; burglary; conspiracy to commit murder; conspiracy to commit robbery; and conspiracy to commit burglary.

Padilla is scheduled to make his initial court appearance Thursday at the Regional Justice Center.

It was only a matter of time. I had complete trust this day would come,” said Amber Santee, Mark’s daughter, in a statement issued to News 3.” I m happy about the arrest but deeply saddened that my Dad s life was taken.”
