DECATUR, Ga. (AP) -- An 18-year-old man has been charged with murder in the death of his pregnant fiancee who was reported missing last week.

Jail records and news outlets report 18-year-old Aldeyshaun Locklear was arrested Wednesday and also charged with aggravated assault-strangulation and concealing a death. DeKalb County police say authorities found the body of 19-year-old Tea Choates on Tuesday in a wooded area near a highway outside Atlanta.
