NORTH PORT, Fla. – A man suspected of kidnapping and killing a North Port woman has been charged with murder.
Prosecutors charged 36-year-old Michael Lee King late Monday. He is accused of abducting 21-year-old Denise Amber Lee from her home last week, killing her with a single gunshot and burying her body in a shallow grave.
Police captured King shortly after Lee made a 911 call from his cell phone. During the call, the mother of two could be heard crying and begging her captor to set her free.
Her body was found Saturday after a massive search.
North Port is south of Sarasota.
