A Texas teen who had been considered missing in September is now facing murder charges in connection to the death of a man she met online.
Natalie Navarro, 17, was indicted by a Dallas County grand jury this week on capital murder charges over the August death of 21-year-old Arturo Pena.
The indictment alleges that Navarro was “in the course of committing and attempting to” rob the victim when she shot him.
Pena was found dead inside his car on August 29, two weeks after he first met Navarro.
Detectives believe Navarro had a male accomplice, identified as 21-year-old Yordy Martinez.
Following the murder, Navarro was the subject of an Amber Alert before she was located near the Mexico border. Her accomplice remains at large.
