The victim was identified as Yolanda Chambers, who had been missing since May 6.

Warren was detained and told police he had taken a life and needed to be punished, according to the report.

Investigators have not said if Warren knew the victim or how she was killed. Chambers was found facedown and covered with cardboard boxes, Fox 13 noted.

Warren now faces charges of second-degree murder and abuse of a corpse. He is being held in Shelby County jail on $500,000 bond.
