BROOKSVILLE (FOX 13) -

A man accused of killing a woman who disappeared on New Year's Day has been arrested.

Hunters found the body of 18-year-old Deanna Lee Stires off State Road 24 in Levy County on Jan. 18. Byron Lee Boutin, 44, of Homosassa has been charged with second-degree murder.

He was arrested after telling police he met Stires on Christmas Day and then spent the day doing drugs with her and his girlfriend.

Boutin said the girl started acting out, so he tied her up. When he came home, he said she was dead.

He then told police he wrapped her body up and dumped her in the woods.
