SALEM, Mass. (AP) - A man who acknowledged being with a Boston-area woman just before she disappeared in November has been charged with murder in her death.

The Essex district attorney’s office said 37-year-old Jason Fleury of East Lynn was arrested Wednesday in Hampton, Virginia, and agreed to return to Massachusetts. He is being arraigned Thursday in Salem.

Fleury is charged with killing 25-year-old Jaimee Mendez of Swampscott, the single mother of a young son. Her family reported her missing Nov. 8, saying they hadn’t seen her since she called a friend Nov. 6 to pick her up. Her remains were found Jan. 28 on King’s Beach in Swampscott.

Fleury told the Daily Item of Lynn in an interview last year he was with Mendez to buy drugs the night she disappeared, but did not kill her.
