BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A 45-year-old Boise woman has been charged with first-degree murder two months after the body of a 61-year-old man was found in his vehicle in the Boise foothills.

KTVB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2eCLQkW) that Francis March appeared in 4th District Court on Monday where a judge set bail at $1 million.

Prosecutors say March drugged Mark Irwin and then suffocated him with a plastic bag.

Authorities say March then wrapped Irwin’s body in a plastic tarp and drove the body to the Boise foothills in Irwin’s vehicle and left it there.

March and 19-year-old Anthony Barclay of Boise were arrested on Aug. 25 amid suspicion they stole items from Irwin.

Irwin’s body was found the next day in his van in the Boise foothills.
