OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Texas man has been charged in the 1997 kidnapping and slaying of a 19-year-old woman in Bethany.

According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, 56-year-old William Lewis Reece of Houston was charged with first degree-murder and kidnapping Monday.

Court documents say Tiffany Johnston was abducted July 26, 1997, from the Sunshine Car Wash. Authorities say her car was found at the car wash with the keys in the ignition, and her partially clothed body was discovered the next day in a tall patch of grass in Yukon.

The state medical examiner said Johnston had been strangled to death.

According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Reece is currently incarcerated in Texas for aggravated kidnapping and theft. It was not immediately clear if Reece has an attorney.
