DALLAS (AP) — Police in Dallas say a 49-year-old man has been arrested and charged with capital murder in the death of a woman whose body was found this week in her burning SUV.

Authorities say Glen Richter was arrested and booked early Thursday into the Dallas County jail in the death of 22-year-old Sara Hudson, who worked in Dallas after graduating recently from the University of Arkansas.

Investigators say firefighters responded Monday evening to a report of a vehicle fire and Hudson’s body was found inside after the flames were extinguished.

Her family says she was intending to meet with friends to celebrate her birthday.

Police have not revealed a motive in the killing. A police affidavit says Hudson is seen on surveillance video exiting her SUV before Richter approaches and forces her back inside.

Online jail records don’t indicate whether Richter has an attorney to answer the charges.
