Guam - Three people have been arrested in connection with the murder of U.S. Air Force Staff Sergeant Nathan Paet, who was shot and killed outside his home last week.  According to CBS affiliate 8NewsNow, police have arrested 31-year-old Michael Rudolph Rodriguez, 33-year-old Corry A. Hawkins and 23-year-old Jessica Austin.

All are facing murder and conspiracy to commit murder charges. The motive of the murder is still unclear but police say it was likely greed and more arrests could be forthcoming.  Paet, originally from Yona and 28 at the time of the shooting, has been stationed at Nellis Air Force Base with his wife Michelle and their four children. 

Memorial services were held earlier this week at the air base and in Las Vegas as preparations were being made to bring his body back to Guam.

The Las Vegas Journal-Review also reports that Paet's wife is also a suspect in the case.  They report that Las Vegas Police Sergeant Russ Shoemaker said Rodriguez established a relationship with Michelle through mutual employment and that the shooting was planned in advance. Michelle has yet to be arrested or charged.  The report also noted that Michelle did not attend her husband's memorial service at Nellis this week.
