LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say a 45-year-old man faces a murder charge in connection with the death of his ex-girlfriend, whose body was found in her car just blocks from her home in Monrovia.

Los Angeles County prosecutors say Jose Robert Turner was arrested last week following a search by sheriff’s detectives. He is scheduled for arraignment Thursday.

Thirty-one-year-old Lajoya McCoy’s body was discovered in June about a mile from the apartment complex where she lived.

Authorities have not released information on how she died.

City News Service says McCoy worked as an accountant for LA County and owned a clothing boutique. She had two children, ages 7 and 9.

It wasn’t immediately known if Turner has a lawyer.
