PORTLAND , Maine (AP) - A New York City man charged with killing a Maine woman and leaving her body in a vehicle in a Portland motel parking lot is back in Maine.
Authorities say 19-year-old Anthony Pratt was brought to the Cumberland County jail on Wednesday. The Queens, N.Y., man is scheduled to appear in Cumberland County Unified Criminal Court on Friday for his initial appearance on a murder charge.
Police say Pratt fatally shot 29-year-old Westbrook resident Margarita Fisenko Scott, whose body was discovered Jan. 17 in an SUV in a Motel 6 parking lot.
Authorities allege Pratt shot Scott elsewhere in November and brought her body to the parking lot, where it had been for "an extended time" before it was discovered. Police say the couple had been dating.
