A woman was arrested in connection with the man's death

Police Thursday released the name of the 39-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of murder after a 62-year-old man's body was found in the back yard of a home in the Harbor Gateway area of Los Angeles.

The body was discovered about 9:50 a.m. in the 800 block of West 173rd Street, between Vermont Avenue and the Harbor (110) Freeway, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.

The coroner's office identified the victim as Royce Lanham. Kristen Olson, who was inside a residence near where the body was discovered, was taken into custody following a standoff with officers and later arrested, police said.

Olson was being held in lieu of $2 million bail, according to sheriff's inmate records. Information was not immediately available on Lanham's cause of death.
