DETROIT (AP) - A 46-year-old Detroit man has been charged in the slaying of a 20-year-old woman who was reported missing more than a year ago.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says Jerry McCoy is charged with first-degree premeditated murder. McCoy was scheduled to be arraigned Saturday.

Deann Robinson’s family reported her missing on Jan. 3, 2015. Police found Robinson’s body last month.

Robinson is believed to have been strangled to death at one house. Her body then was taken to another location on Detroit’s west side.

The prosecutor’s office says McCoy and Robinson had known each other for several months before her death.
