Nearly one year after a pregnant womans body was found on the Blue Ridge Parkway, her former boyfriend has been charged in the case, the Henderson County Sheriffs Office said.
Jermaine Deprie Glover, 37, was charged with first-degree murder, police said. He was arrested and was being held in the Henderson County Detention Center with no bond.
On Oct. 19, 2009, a passing driver discovered Misty Lynn Carters body near mile marker 395 on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Buncombe County. Investigators said her death was caused by blunt force trauma to the head.
Glover and Carter lived together in Hendersonville, police said. Carter was six weeks pregnant at the time of her death. The paternity of the baby was not known.
Glover was expected to have a court appearance on Friday.
