DARKE COUNTY, OH - A man in Ohio is facing aggravated murder charges after police found what is believed to be the body of his missing estranged girlfriend.

Officials say, Roy Owens Jr., 56, crashed his car along State Route 49 near Greenville, north of Dayton in Darke County Wednesday.

Deputies found the woman's body in the trunk and arrested him.

The body is believed to be Linnea Satterfield, 56, who went missing from her home in Elyria on Monday.

That's when police found blood stains and signs of a struggle in her house.

Owens was nowhere to be found either, and he was wanted in the possible kidnapping.

Owens was taken into custody without incident and was taken to a local hospital for evaluation before he was booked into the Darke County Jail on felonious assault and domestic violence charges.
