Chile authorities arrest suspect in slaying of Kentucky woman

Posted: Updated:
SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -- Police in Chile have arrested a suspect in the killing of a U.S. citizen in the South American country.

The body of Erica Faith Hagan was found in the bathroom of her apartment in the southern city of Temuco on Sept. 6. Local prosecutor Cristian Paredes says a poker was used to strike her.

The 22-year-old was a recent graduate of Kentucky's Georgetown College. She had been in Temuco since July 28 working as a teaching assistant at a local school.

Officials say a security guard at the school named Domingo Cofre was arrested Friday night.

Hagan was from Murray, Kentucky, and was scheduled to return home in December.
