PASO ROBLES — Paso Robles Police Department detectives, along with the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office, arrested 23-year-old Nicholas Ron, of Paso Robles, for the murder of Trevon Perry on Sunday, June 28.

Perry went missing in the early morning hours of March 15. Friends and family reported him missing on March 16.
