HOUSTON (AP) - A Houston man has been arrested in the 2014 slaying of a woman whose body was found in an abandoned warehouse.

Harris County court records show 34-year-old Lucius Alexander Williams was being held Tuesday on a murder charge. Online records do not list an attorney to speak for Williams, who was arrested Monday and bond set at $100,000.

Police have said 35-year-old Lakeisha Perkins, who worked at her family’s upholstery business, was last seen alive by relatives on July 21, 2014.

A tip to 911 led to her body found the next day. An autopsy determined Perkins was sexually assaulted and died from her injuries.

A police statement Tuesday said evidence at the scene identified Williams as a suspect. Police didn’t immediately provide further details on the investigation.
