GRAPEVINE, Texas – Police arrested a man accused of murdering a Texas college student, whose body was found in a Grapevine park.

Last Wednesday morning, officials found the burnt body of 24-year-old Jacqeline Vandagriff at Acorn Woods Park.

“The body appears to have been set on fire, and the body has some degree of dismemberment,” Grapevine Sgt. Robert Eberling told KXAS.

During the investigation, officers discovered surveillance video that showed Vandagriff leaving a bar with 30-year-old Charles Dean Bryant the night before her body was discovered.

Bryant was arrested and charged with capital murder in the case.

According to KXAS, Bryant had just been released from the Denton County Jail  for stalking four days before he allegedly met and murdered Vandagriff.
