Published: Updated:

PALM BAY, Fla. (AP) – An arrest has been made in the death of a woman whose body was found in the trunk of an abandoned car in Palm Bay earlier this week.

Multiple media outlet report police say 25-year-old Stephen Warrington was arrested Thursday at a home where investigators believe Jillian Kusznir was killed before her body was discovered Tuesday morning.

Authorities say they found Kusznir inside the trunk of the car located near the residence.

Palm Bay police Cmdr. John Resh said in a statement Thursday that an investigation revealed Kusznir’s killing wasn’t random and that she and Warrington had arranged to meet at the home beforehand.

Warrington is charged with first-degree premeditated murder in Kusznir’s death. It isn’t immediately clear if he has an attorney.

Police have not said how Kusznir died.
