Court documents filed on Wednesday, the 27th, identify the victim as 31-year-old Jesus Cisneros Meza, an employee and part owner of Senor Carlos.
The two men charged with murder are Jorge Pablo Gonzalez, the restaurant manager, and Diego Handelin Valdivia Villonueva, a kitchen worker.
Meza's body was in the cargo bed of the truck and information in the truck helped police identify Meza.
Arkansas State Police investigators joined Izard County Deputies and Salem Police Chief Al Roork in Salem.
Monday afternoon, Special Agent Todd Shaw interviewed manager Gonzalez at the restaurant seeking background information on Meza.
According to Shaw's affidavit, Gonzalez made "incriminating statements" during the interview, including admissions that the person who shot Meza worked at the restaurant and that Gonzalez had helped clean the crime scene and dispose of the body.
During questioning at the Fulton County Sheriff's Department, Diego Villonueva admitted to shooting Meza in the restaurant kitchen with a pistol that Gonzalez provided. Villonueva confirmed Gonzalez' statement that they, then, cleaned the crime scene and Gonzalez followed him to Izard County where Meza's body and vehicle were dumped.
According to police statements, both men indicated that Gonzalez paid Villonueva $200 to kill Meza.
Circuit Judge Tim Weaver has ordered both men held without bond.
Villonueva is being held at the Fulton County Jail while Gonzalez has been taken to the Izard County Detention Center.
Both men are to appear in court on Thursday, Oct. 28, to be formally charged with Capital Murder, an offense which could lead to the death penalty being imposed.
