Missing Maryland Woman's Body Found in Boyfriend's Van

Maryland police say the body of a missing woman has been found in her boyfriend's van. 

Edgar Franklin Manning IV, 26, is charged with first- and second-degree murder.

Manning's girlfriend, 21-year-old Megan Ellen Burdeaux, was reported missing Tuesday night. Police received a tip that same night that Burdeaux may have been killed by Manning. Authorities found her body in his van in Odenton hours later. 

Manning was in the van when police approached and fought officers. Police say they believe Manning attacked Burdeaux during an argument in Pasadena, Maryland, Monday. 

Burdeaux's cause of death is pending an autopsy. It's unclear if Manning has a lawyer.
