HOUSTON -

A man has been charged in the case of a woman's body found wrapped in a towel in a ditch back in July.

Dennis Wayne Greer is charged with murder. Police say on July 8 officers responded to a person down call at 8500 Tate Street and found the body of 22-year-old Jonequa Brewster in a ditch on the side of the street.  She was partially covered with what appeared to be a comforter and a towel.

An autopsy by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences concluded Brewster had been shot in the head.  Police say further investigation identified Greer as a suspect in this case and he was charged on Dec. 6.

Greer, 32, is currently being held in the Harris County Jail on unrelated charges.
