BOSTON (AP) – A man arrested in Delaware after a woman’s body was found in the trunk of the car he was driving will return to Rhode Island to face charges.

Louis D. Coleman III is being charged with kidnapping, refusal to report a death with intent to conceal, and mutilation of a dead body.

Jassy Correia’s family confirmed her body was found Thursday. She was last seen early Sunday leaving a Boston nightclub with a man.

Correia’s cousin, Katia Depina, told reporters the 23-year-old woman “went out to celebrate her birthday and never returned home.” Depina says her family wants “justice for her death.”

Correia was the mother of a 2-year-old girl.

Officials spent Thursday searching the 32-year-old Coleman’s Providence apartment and the surrounding area for evidence.
