NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) — Two people have been charged with murder for the death of a 17-year-old who was found dead in Virginia more than two weeks after she was reported missing.
The Newport Police Department said 30-year-old Crystal Ashley Rudy Albritton was arrested Wednesday for the death of Asia Lionetta Cowell in September.
The other suspect who was charged is an 18-year-old woman. Police did not identify her because she was a juvenile at the time.
Cowell was reported missing from Norfolk on Sept. 7. Her body was then recovered in Newport News by responding officers who received a call about a deceased person. Albritton and the unidentified teenager also face other charges.
