McIntyre was charged with first-degree murder and the death of his 17-year-old, Ebony Franklin. The teen's body was found in the trash container last year in Washington’s Columbia Height's neighborhood.

Police chief Cathy Lanier says investigators were led to their clues through a combination of forensic and electronic evidence gathered since November. Shortly after the investigation began, McIntyre quickly criticized the investigation charging harassment by police.
