Missing Oklahoma Girl's Body Found in Neighbor's Apartment

April 15, 2006 - Posted at 1:17 p.m. CST

PURCELL, Okla. (AP) _ An Oklahoma prosecutor calls the murder of

a ten-year-old girl one of the most ``heinous and atrocious''

crimes he's seen.

He says he'll file first-degree murder charges on Monday and

will seek the death penalty in the killing of Jamie Bolin.

The Purcell girl had been missing since Wednesday night, when

she didn't return home from the library.

Police say her body was found yesterday in the apartment of a

26-year-old neighbor. Authorities say Kevin Underwood is being held

without bond in the McClain County Jail.

Authorities say a tip from the F-B-I led them to Underwood's

apartment.
