DINWIDDIE, Va. (AP) - The Virginia medical examiner’s office says a missing teen found dead earlier this week was suffocated.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch quotes the medical examiner’s office as saying Friday that it has ruled 17-year-old Ke’Asia Adkins’ death a homicide. The body of the high school cheerleader was found Thursday morning as investigators searched the woods behind her Dinwiddie home.

She was last seen alive by her family Monday morning. She was reported missing when she didn’t show up for cheer practice or return home. The Dinwiddie County Sheriff’s Office later arrested 21-year-old Anton Deonte Coleman on a charge of abduction. Investigators declined to say how the two are connected, citing the ongoing investigation.

It’s unclear whether Coleman has a lawyer. A hearing for Coleman is set for Monday.
