A 50-year-old St. Croix man, who was arrested and charged Wednesday with burglary and home invasion, has been identified as the chief suspect in the killing of a woman reported missing and later found buried in a shallow grave, according to police.

Police spokesperson Glen Dratte said Daivys Renaldo Vasquez was picked up by police Wednesday afternoon near the Christiansted bandstand, hours the body of Robin “Nancy” Hitesman was discovered.
