TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - KOLD News 13 has confirmed a woman found dead in Seattle is from the Tucson area.

Seattle police have said they believe body parts found in a recycling bin belong to Ingrid Rounsaville Lyne.

Lyne, a 40-year-old mother of three, graduated from Canyon del Oro High School in Oro Valley in 1993.

She graduated from the University of Arizona with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 1997.

According to the Associated Press, police arrested John Robert Charlton, 37, in connection with the homicide. Charlton has a lengthy criminal history, including felony theft in Montana in 2009, negligent driving in Washington in 1998 and a second-degree felony for aggravated robbery in Utah in 2006.

Lyne, who worked as a nurse in Seattle, was reported missing Saturday, April 9. Authorities said Lyne's friends said she had planned to go on a date to a Mariners baseball game the night before with someone she met online.

A homeowner called police Saturday after discovering the body parts inside plastic bags. The bin had been emptied of recyclables Friday.
