GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Human remains found Oct. 7 have been identified as those of a missing Gulfport woman - and police have announced an arrest in her death.

The victim was Tena Marie Broadus, who was in her late 20s. She was last seen Sept. 17 and her family had reported her missing on Sept. 25.
