GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. -- Glynn County Police won't have to go far to find the suspect wanted in connection with the murder of Amber Whited -- he is already in jail facing murder charges in a separate investigation.

Police have not yet confirmed that the body found Sundayis that of Whited, but GCPD Chief Matt Doeringbelieves it is.

Doering expects murder charges will be filed on Raymond Michael Brasiel, 20, in connection with the death of Amber Whited.

Brasiel's new charges will likely be added to the charges filed last week stemming from a double stabbing that left one person dead on Friday.
