The Wayne County prosecutor's office says 24-year-old Jerrod Metsker will be arraigned Thursday on charges of aggravated murder, kidnapping and rape.
Records for the county court do not list a current attorney for Metsker.
Authorities say he was the last person seen with Reann Murphy at their trailer park in Smithville, southwest of Akron. A caller identifying himself as Metsker reported Reann missing in a 911 call.
Her body was found Dec. 15. Metsker was arrested later that day.
Authorities have said the death penalty would be available as punishment if Metsker is convicted of murder.
