Authorities in West Texas discovered the body of a woman who was reported missing in a trash bin in Odessa.

Police arrested the roommate of the victim’s boyfriend with the death of 21-year-old Ashley Williams on Wednesday in Weatherford.

Investigators said 22-year-old Kevin Lee Roberts of Odessa was charged with murder.

Roberts was located driving a vehicle belonging to the victim’s boyfriend, who had reported her missing hours earlier.

Officers first interviewed Roberts before discovering the stabbed body of Williams in a dumpster.

Police officials haven’t released a possible motive in the slaying but stated that Roberts confessed to killing Williams, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Online records didn’t immediately list bond or an attorney representing Roberts, who is also facing a charged of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

The victim’s boyfriend was arrested in an unrelated case on Tuesday related to a child sexual assault investigation.
