2 men arrested for murder in Scottsdale hotel parking lot after multistate manhunt – Shimonov


PHOENIX — Two 41-year-old men have been arrested for the murder of a man in a Scottsdale parking lot earlier this month following a manhunt that spanned five states, authorities said.

Robert Yves Celifie was arrested on Jan. 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada, while Chaze M. Cable was taken into custody two days later in Texarkana, Arkansas.

Both men face numerous felony charges including first-degree murder in the shooting death of Ilya “Mike” Shimonov on Jan. 3, the Scottsdale Police Department said in a press release Thursday.

Officers found Shimonov just after 8:30 p.m. in the north parking lot of the Hyatt Place Hotel near the intersection of 3rd Avenue and Drinkwater Boulevard, police said.

Shimonov was transported to the hospital, where he died from his injuries.

Scottsdale detectives followed up on the investigation in California, Nevada, Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana, police said, with six different law enforcement agencies helping find the two men.
