MIDDLETOWN, Ohio — A 33-year-old man has been charged with murder Wednesday in connection with the death of a woman who was found dead inside a vehicle in Middletown, Middletown police said.

Darnell Dollar was found to have assaulted 61-year-old Constance Sue Reddix. Police later found Reddix dead March 14 in a vehicle in a parking lot near Hanover Avenue and South Verity Parkway.

Police first found Reddix's body after multiple phone calls concerning an unresponsive person inside a vehicle. Sgt. Earl Nelson said the body had "obvious signs of trauma."

Reddix's death was ruled a homicide Wednesday, and investigators are conducting an autopsy. The results of that autopsy haven't been released meaning her exact cause of her death remains unknown.

Dollar has been booked into the Middletown City Jail on the charge of murder.

Middletown police are continuing to investigate and anyone with information is asked to contact Detective Kristi Hughes at 513-425-7733.
