HOUSTON (AP) - Harris County prosecutors say a teenage boy has been charged with killing his 15-year-old girlfriend whose body was found stuffed in a cabinet under a sink at an abandoned Houston-area apartment complex.

The Houston Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1WYP3xL ) records read in court Wednesday show the boy used his cellphone to record the sounds of Karen Perez resisting as she was being raped and fatally choked. Searchers found her body Monday. She was reported missing when she failed to return home from school Friday.

The boy in custody is under 17. His name has not been released.

Prosecutors say the boy’s father was accompanying him in a search for Perez in their South Houston neighborhood when the teenager told him she was not alive. The father then notified police.
