Wisconsin authorities have confirmed the identity of a second woman found dead in a suitcase earlier this month.

Police identified 21-year-old Jenny Gamez of Cottage Grove, Oregon, using dental records. Thirty-seven-year-old Laura Simonson of Minnesota is the first victim.

Last week, Steven Zelich was arrested in connection with the deaths.

Zelich is charged with two counts of hiding a corpse. He told authorities he met both women online.
