Man charged with illegal body disposal after baby disappears

(AP) A Virginia man has been charged with illegal disposal of a body and authorities say the charge is related to the disappearance of a 3-month-old girl.

Montgomery County Sheriff’s officials said they arrested 31-year-old Andrew Terry of Roanoke Sept. 12 after Roanoke police asked for help with a criminal case. Terry is charged with illegal disposal of a body and is being held without bond. Capt. Brian Wright said the charge is linked to the disappearance of Arieanna Day, but declined to say more.

Roanoke police said Arieanna’s mother reported the infant missing Sept. 11, saying she put the baby to bed, but the child was gone an hour later.

Roanoke police said Sept. 13 that they’re still investigating, but circumstances “indicate that she is most likely deceased.”
