MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A 23-year-old man previously suspected in three attacks on women in Georgia has been charged with murder in the death of a Minnesota woman.

Alberto Prece Palmer was charged Friday in Anoka County with second-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Brittany Clardy.

Investigators say Clardy met Palmer after he answered her online ad for massage services in February. A criminal complaint says Palmer told police the two fought after having sex, and he beat her in the head with a hammer.

Clardy’s body was found Feb. 21 hidden in her mother’s car, which had been towed to a Columbia Heights impound lot.

It wasn’t immediately clear Friday if Palmer had an attorney. He was held in the county jail in Anoka on $2 million bail.
