FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Police say the ex-boyfriend of a North Carolina teen missing for a month has been charged in her death.

Authorities say 17-year-old Je’Michael Malloy of Autryville was charged Tuesday with second-degree murder in the death of 15-year-old Danielle Locklear.

Locklear was reported missing March 11. Police say Malloy admitted to choking the Hope Mills teen that night, stuffing a sock in her mouth, tying her body to cinder blocks and throwing it in the river.

An off-duty Cumberland County detective found a body in the South River on April 3. It hasn’t been positively identified, but police say Malloy confessed it belonged to the teen.

Another man, 18-year-old Dominic Lock, is charged with conspiracy for helping Malloy. Both were expected in court Wednesday. It wasn’t known whether they had attorneys.
