SAINT JOHN, N.B. -- A 20-year-old man has been charged with manslaughter in connection with the death of 20-year-old Jessica Miller of Apohaqui, N.B., in July.

Jesse Reynolds is to appear in Court of Queen's Bench in Saint John on Wednesday.

He is also facing a previous charge of committing an indignity to a dead body in connection with Miller's death.

Miller was reported missing after family members had not heard from her for a number of days.

Her vehicle was discovered in Saint John on July 13, and police recovered her body in a wooded area off Highway 1 near Prince of Wales, west of Saint John, that evening.
