    On Tuesday investigators identified the body of 34-year-old Eliza Fletcher, a schoolteacher and a prominent Memphis businessman’s granddaughter whose disappearance horrified the country. She had been kidnapped about 4am on Friday, when a man approached her and forced her into a sport utility vehicle after a brief struggle, police said.
    ...
    Federal marshals jailed Cleotha Abston, 38, on Saturday after police detected his DNA on a pair of sandals found near where [Fletcher] had last been seen. Memphis police said that Abston will now also face charges of first-degree murder while carrying out a kidnapping, which under Tennessee law can carry life imprisonment or even execution.
    ...
    Abston kidnapped a prominent attorney [Kemper Durand] in 2000, when Abston was just 16 years old. Abston forced Durand to drive to a gasoline station to withdraw money from an ATM. He received a 24-year sentence. In the two years since his release, there were no further documented charges against Abston in the Memphis area prior to his arrest on Saturday.
