HARKER HEIGHTS, Texas (AP) - A Central Texas man has been charged with murder in the slaying of a Fort Hood soldier whose body was found beside a road four miles from where his burned sport utility vehicle was found.

Brandon Michael Olivares is booked into the Bell County Jail in Belton with a bond set at $1 million.

A police affidavit says he and Pfc. Brandon Rosecrans were riding in Rosecran's SUV when Olivares shot the soldier and left his body beside a secluded road near Stillhouse Hollow Lake in Harker Heights, about 11 miles from Fort Hood.

His SUV was found burning about four miles away.
