ST GEORGE'S, Grenada (AP) — A schoolteacher in Grenada has been charged with murder in the slaying of a young woman whose dismembered remains were discovered in a trash bin.

Police did not disclose what evidence led them Saturday to arrest 23-year-old John Redhead, who teaches 5th grade at an Adventist primary school.

Investigators say they found a weapon and personal belongings of 19-year-old victim Akera Lalgie scattered in a secluded area of the capital St George's.

An autopsy revealed that the young woman died of hypovolemic shock, or low blood volume. It also found she had been strangled.

Redhead is due to make his initial court appearance today in St George's. It is not immediately clear if he has a lawyer.
