Authorities in Florida have charged a suspect with murder in connection to a woman’s body found partially buried in the backyard of a rental property.

On April 20, the owner of the property in Allendale was cleaning the yard and getting the home ready for new renters when he discovered the body of 40-year-old LaDonna Williams in a box by a fence, WJAX-TV reported.

Williams was last seen alive in February.

“I was stressed out all the time, really,” the victim’s son, Dante Williams, told WJXT. “I would think about her constantly. I would look for her. I would try to ask for help.”

According to the son, Williams was Slade’s manager and the two worked for the property owner fixing up properties.

“I’m happy and I’m glad they finally caught someone, and they’re putting things together, but it doesn’t fix the problem,” he said. “I’d still rather have my mom.”

At the time of his arrest for Williams' slaying, Slade was already in custody in Duval County on an attempted murder charge in connection to a separate incident, WJAX-TV reported.
