🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police say they have arrested a man in the death of an 18-year-old found slain in her crashed minivan this month.

Police said they arrested 34-year-old Antonio Lamar Cochran on Saturday in the death of Zoe Hastings. Police say Cochran has been charged with capital murder and his bond is set at $1 million. He remained in Dallas County jail Saturday. Jail records don’t list an attorney.

Police say DNA evidence from the crime scene was linked to him. Police also say he matched the description of a witness who saw Hastings being abducted on Oct. 11 from a Walgreens. Authorities found her body the next morning in her minivan.

Hastings was a 2015 graduate of Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.
