Police have arrested and charged a man with killing a 13-year-old girl who was kidnapped last month from a North Carolina mobile home park.

He is charged with first-degree murder, first-degree forcible rape, statutory rape of a person under 15 years of age or younger, first-degree sexual offense, statutory sex offense with a person 15 years or younger, first-degree kidnapping, felony larceny, felony restraint, abduction of child and concealment of a death. He is being held without bond in the Robeson County Detention Center.

McLellan's first court appearance is expected Monday morning.

McLellan, who was free on parole at the time of the murder, was already in police custody on other charges when he was arrested on suspicion of the murder.

The girl's body was found in a body of water in Robeson County on November 27 about 10 miles (16 kilometers) south of the mobile home park where she was kidnapped on November 5. "She will always be my princess".

Hundreds gathered around Hania's white casket at Lumberton Junior High School, where her mother, Celsa Maribel Hernandez, recalled the last time she held her hand.

Aguilar's Texas-based immigration attorney, Naimeh Salem, told the Times that his client's application was denied because US officials feared the grieving father lacked close ties to his home country and might not return.

Principal placed on leave for banning candy canes
Santa Claus, Christmas trees, Elf on the Shelf, reindeer , any red and green items and candy canes were also Grinched out. The district's policy says Christmas trees, Santa, Easter eggs and bunnies are considered 'secular, seasonal symbols'.

"When I found out what happened to you that morning, I didn't want to believe it", she said.

Immigration attorney Naimeh Salem said USA embassy officials in Guatemala denied the temporary visa on grounds that Aguilar "didn't have enough ties to his home country, Guatemala". Salem said Aguilar had lived in United States and moved back to Guatemala when Hania was an infant.

The arrest came just hours before a crowd of as many as 1,000 people attended a funeral service for the eighth grader at Lumberton Senior High School, local CBS affiliate WNCN reported.

"There aren't any magic words that will heal the hurt that our school community feels", Maultsby said.

Immigration attorney Naimeh Salem said US Embassy officials in Guatemala denied the temporary visa on the grounds that Aguilar "didn't have enough ties to his home country, Guatemala". I have work here. Her body was later located on November 27, 2018. "I prayed for you to come back that same day but you didn't".

"Maybe I'll get lost somewhere", he said. Rest in peace daughter, my gorgeous princess, ' the heartbroken father said. "I'll either stay home or take a long walk alone".

The stolen SUV was found abandoned less than 10 miles from Hania's home at the Rosewood Mobile Home Park, authorities said. Lumberton police detectives and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents had discovered the body in an area near Wire Grass Road in Lumberton about the previous afternoon, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a news release.
