FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -Authorities say a man hired a prostitute to meet him at a hotel, killed her, put her body in a plastic container and buried it in his backyard.

Broward Sheriff’s officials say 25-year-old Tyquan Pearson met 19-year-old Brittney Taylor at a South Florida motel in May after soliciting her online.

Authorities say hotel surveillance video showed Taylor enter the room.

Four hours later, the video shows Pearson leaving, pushing a stroller with a blue storage container.

The investigation led detectives to a home where they found Taylor’s remains inside the container and buried in the backyard.

Pearson was arrested on a warrant in Norfolk, Virginia and was transferred on Tuesday to South Florida, where he is being held without bond on a murder charge.
