The body parts in the barrel were identified as 39-year-old Rene Olsmos Enriquez Jr. According to investigators, it’s believed Enriquez was killed at a home near Washington Avenue and Jones Boulevard in late October.

Following Bentley’s arrest, police said they believed a second person was involved in helping Bentley dismember Enriquez’s body and then hide the remains in a 55-gallon barrel, the 8 News Now Investigators first reported.

The barrel was discovered on Nov. 29 near Quail Avenue and Palm Street in southeast Las Vegas. A public works contractor opened it and found the remains.

Bentley, who remains in Clark County Detention Center, is scheduled to have a preliminary hearing on Dec. 19.
