Man charged in Alexandria killing
A man has been arrested and charged in the slaying of an Alexandria woman.
Local police said Tuesday that they arrested David Cunningham, 40, of Alexandria, and charged him with seconddegree murder. He is being held without bond.
It was not known whether he has a lawyer.
Cunningham is charged in the Dec. 7 killing of Melia Jones, 23, of Alexandria. Police said Jones was found dead about 2:40 p.m. in her apartment on South Van Dorn Street.
Her death was ruled a homicide the next day by the medical examiner; disclosure of the cause and manner of her death is still pending.
The case remains under investigation.
