Teen Arrested in Case of Body Found in Landfill

Posted: Updated:
The mystery of the death of Austintown, Ohio teen Gina Burger whose body was found last week in a Mercer County landfill, may be getting clearer, with an arrest made Tuesday night.

Reports from CBS affiliate WKBN in Youngstown say 18- year- old Ricki D. Williams IV has been taken into custody, and is facing charges of aggravated murder and kidnapping.

Burger's body was found Wednesday afternoon at a dump site that takes collections from sites including Erie.

Burger had left her apartment to borrow tea bags, and never returned home.

She was found by workers at the landfill with multiple stab wounds, and her death was ruled a homicide.

WKBN reports that Williams and the victim were familiar with each other, and that Burger was killed in her apartment complex. They have not yet recovered the murder weapon.
