NATCHITOCHES, La. (AP) Authorities say a 37-year-old Natchitoches Parish man has been charged with murder in connection with a missing woman whose body has not yet been found.
Sheriff Victor Jones Jr. says deputies arrested Morgan Prothro Tuesday and charged him with second-degree murder in the disappearance of 47-year-old Clara Patricia "Patty" Bynog.
Jones said the arrest came after a 2 1/2 month investigation into the Dec. 13 disappearance of Bynog, who was known to have been with Prothro prior to her disappearance.
Prothro is being held in the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center.
It wasn't immediately clear if Prothro has an attorney.
