LOUISA, Va. — A man has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of his girlfriend, who authorities say was struck by a vehicle and found along the side of a Virginia road.

Local media report 30-year-old Gregory P. Veres was charged Friday after investigators questioned him. The victim wasn’t immediately identified, pending notification of relatives.

Louisa County Sheriff’s Maj. Donald Lowe said in a news release that the woman’s body was found Friday morning near a subdivision in Louisa, about 60 miles northwest of Richmond.

Lowe says authorities determined Veres and the victim were in a relationship and living together at a relative’s house.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports Veres is being held without bail and is set to appear in court Monday. Court records don’t list an attorney.
