July 2, 2014 - A man is behind bars after an Ohio teenager's body was found in a Mercer County landfill. The Austintown, Ohio police chief confirmed that 18 year old Ricki Williams IV, of Youngstown, has been charged with murder and kidnapping in connection to the death of 16 year old Gina Burger of Austintown, Ohio.

Burger was last seen on June 23. She was reported missing by her mother that night. Her body was found last week at Tri-County Industries.

An autopsy was performed here in Erie County and the coroner determined she'd been stabbed in the chest. Authorities believe the body was dumped there by a truck carrying waste sometime last Wednesday.
