Khphruan Campbell, 39, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter and concealment of a human corpse in connection with 38-year-old Becky Crown’s death, the NYPD said Wednesday. 

Campbell fled to Chicago after the alleged crime — where he was staying at an “associate’s home” — but was arrested by authorities there on May 11, the Daily News reported

NYPD officers found Crown’s partially-clothed body inside a garbage can in the Belmont section of the Bronx around 8:30 a.m. on April 20, according to police and the report. 

Campbell and Crown were in a relationship at some point prior to Crown's death, the Daily News reported. 

Campbell was convicted of attempted robbery and assault in Manhattan back in 2014, for which he served three years in prison, according to the outlet.
