BALTIMORE (WMAR) — A man was arrested in Baltimore after he was pulled over driving his girlfriend's car, hours before she was found dead inside their Frederick County home.

Maryland State Police say 39-year-old Christopher Myers was taken into custody by Baltimore Police around 6 p.m. Wednesday in the area of Frederick Road.

About two and a half hours later, the family of Myers' girlfriend, Heather Williams, reported her missing after she didn't show up at a relative's house as planned.

Williams' family later went to check on her at her residence in the 4500 block of Jefferson Pike, and noticed her Ford Fiesta wasn't there. The relatives then went inside the home and found Williams dead.

Throughout the investigation, detectives were able to connect Myers to the murder and learned he had been pulled over and arrested on unrelated charges while driving Williams' car earlier in the day in Baltimore.

Detectives executed a search warrant on the vehicle and found several items with blood stains on them.

The Baltimore officer who arrested Myers told Maryland State Police investigators that he was acting unusual and very nervous at the time of the stop.

Williams' official cause of death will be determined by the Chief Medical Examiner upon completion of an autopsy.

Myers is currently being held at a Frederick County detention center without bond.
