PLANO, Texas (AP) — Police say a man charged in the slaying of an ex-girlfriend has been accused of killing a second woman whose body was found in a Dallas lake.

Plano police on Friday announced a capital murder charge against 23-year-old Reginald Gerard Kimbro. Jail records don’t list an attorney for Kimbro, whose bond tops $1 million.

Officials say Kimbro is charged with killing 36-year-old Megan Getrum of Plano, who was last seen April 14 at a nature preserve. Her body was found April 19 in Lake Ray Hubbard.

Fort Worth police say 22-year-old Molly Matheson was found slain in her apartment April 10. Kimbro was arrested April 27 and charged with killing Matheson, someone he dated when both attended the University of Arkansas.

Investigators say both women were sexually assaulted and strangled.
