SANTA MONICA, Calif. (CBS/KCAL) Two arrests have been made in the homicide of aspiring fashion model and actress Juliana Redding. The 21-year-old was found murdered on March 18, 2008 in her Santa Monica apartment.

Ronnie Wayne Case, 34, and 44-year-old Kelly Soo Park are charged with suspicion of murder and could face the death penalty if convicted, reports CBS affiliate KCAL.

Case and Park will be arraigned Monday.

According to the Ventura County Star, Case is described as an amateur race car driver who frequented the Ventura County Raceway, and Park worked for a business that sponsored Case's car. Both Case and Park are Ventura County residents.

The Santa Monica police say Redding had moved from her hometown of Tucson, Arizona in order to pursue her acting and modeling career.

The Hollywood hopeful was found slain in her rented condominium near Santa Monica Boulevard, says KCAL.

Prior to her death, Redding had a small role in a 2005 movie and was featured in a photo layout in Maxim magazine where she won the magazine's "Hometown Hottie" contest.

Although there are still some ambiguities surrounding Redding's death, police and the FBI who have poured thousands of hours into the case are confident they are closer to solving the mystery of her murder.

Authorities asked anyone with more information to call Santa Monica police Lt. Mike Beautz at 310- 458-8488.
