LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has been charged with kidnapping and killing a woman who believed he was her boyfriend in the Nevada desert.
Federal prosecutors in Las Vegas said Friday that John Matthew Chapman used the victim's Facebook account to correspond with a family member after her death.
The woman's neighbors in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, became suspicious when they hadn't seen her or her vehicle for months, but saw Chapman around the house.
Police say Chapman led the woman to believe they were taking a road trip to Las Vegas, but he brought along a "kill kit." It was not clear if Chapman had a lawyer.
