Boyfriend of Arkansas police dispatcher killed in December 2011 charged with murder

The boyfriend of a police dispatcher in Arkansas who was killed nearly two years ago has been charged in her death.

Garland County Prosecutor Steve Oliver said Monday that Kevin Duck is charged with first-degree murder in the December 2011 death of Dawna Natzke.

Natzke, a Hot Springs dispatcher, was last seen Dec. 21, 2011, leaving a holiday party with Duck. Her body was found New Year's Eve in a remote area in the Ouachita National Forest.

Oliver said Duck is not in custody and is believed to be in Louisiana. He did not know if Duck has an attorney.

Duck told detectives in 2011 that the couple returned to Natzke's home after the party and she was gone when he awoke the next morning.
