JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities have arrested a southern Wisconsin man on suspicion of hiding the body of a 19-year-old woman whose body was burned in a fire pit.
Rock County sheriff's authorities say the 29-year-old man was arrested Wednesday.
The Porter man was being held on suspicion of a probation violation. He is a person of interest in the disappearance of 19-year-old Aprina Paul of Fitchburg but has not been charged.
A lab in Dallas is examining bone fragments. The sheriff's office says if that evidence indicates a cause of Paul's death, other charges are possible.
The man is expected to appear in court Thursday.
In court documents, police say the man met Paul through an online ad for sex, and two days later burned her body over a fire in his yard.
