WILSON, N.C. -- Authorities have arrested the boyfriend of a 23-year-old woman whose body was found in a Wilson creek.

Wilson police Sgt. John Slaughter says 45-year-old Donald Davis was arrested Friday afternoon and charged with killing Courtney Speight.

Earlier Friday, the medical examiner's office identified the body found Wednesday in Contentnea Creek as Speight. Police say she was last seen late Saturday and reported missing on Monday.

Speight's car was found Thursday about two miles from the creek.

The medical examiner has not yet determined a cause of death.

Davis is being held without bail. Whether he has an attorney is unclear.
