WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Police have arrested a man in connection with the death of his ex-girlfriend, who was found dead in a Wilmington dumpster.

The Wilmington Police Department said in a news release that officials arrested 20-year-old Idrees Merritt on Thursday on charges including first-degree murder.

Merritt was taken into custody after the police executed a search warrant at a home near where the body of 21-year-old Miprecious L. Hoskins was found. Police say Hoskins died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Merritt is being held without bail at Young Correctional Institution. Jail records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact authorities.
