A Florida prosecutor says he has enough evidence to charge Meredith Emerson's accused killer with a murder in that state.
William Meggs, the district attorney in Leon County, told the newspaper that authorities are prepared to charge Gary Michael Hilton, 61, with killing 46-year-old Cheryl Hodges Dunlap, whose body was found in the Apalachicola National Forest in December.
Hilton is in custody in Dawson County and facing a murder charge in the death of Emerson, the 24-year-old hiker who went missing on New Year's Day from Blood Mountain near Blairsville.
Meggs did not return repeated phone calls by The Associated Press. Other prosecutors declined to comment.
