SC man arrested in death of woman who was missing

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina man has been arrested and charged with murder in the death of a woman who earlier had been reported missing.

Multiple media outlets reported that 24-year-old Robert Lee Jr. of Spartanburg was arrested Tuesday in the death of 21-year-old Rebecca Rosa.

Police and Spartanburg County sheriff's deputies got a missing person's report on Rosa from family members Sunday. They said she had been missing since early Saturday.

Police say Rosa's brothers found her body in some woods Tuesday. They told police they saw Lee run from the area. Authorities say Lee was Rosa's former boyfriend.

Lee was in jail Wednesday morning. It was unclear if he had an attorney.
