LOS ANGELES The body of a young girl whose body was discovered in a duffel bag near a Los Angeles-area hiking trail last week has been identified, and two persons of interest were being held for questioning Sunday about her death.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said the county coroner identified the girl as Trinity Love Jones, 9, of Los Angeles County. Authorities did not provide more detail about where in the county she lived.

Jones' body was found in a black duffel bag on March 5 by maintenance workers near an equestrian and hiking trail in Hacienda Heights, California, about 20 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

The Los Angeles County Coroner ruled Jones' death a homicide, but the sheriff's department said it was withholding the exact cause.

(CNN) One week after a 9-year-old girl's body was found in a duffel bag, Los Angeles County officials have charged a man with murder.

Emiel Lamar Hunt, 39, was charged Tuesday in the death of Trinity Love Jones. Trinity's body was found March 5 in light brush near an equestrian trail in Hacienda Heights.

Authorities believe Hunt killed Trinity on or around March 1, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said. Officials have not released a possible motive.
