A Kentucky man who was arrested last month after allegedly informing his family that there was a dead woman in his truck has now been indicted for her murder.

Denny Rumfelt, 29, was indicted on Monday for the September murder of 26-year-old Meaghan Dunn, local outlet WDRB reports. He’s now been booked without bond.

Rumfelt and Dunn were neighbors who had reportedly dated at some point in the past.

Dunn’s body was allegedly found wrapped in two sleeping bags and duct tape in the passenger side of Rumfelt’s truck. The grim discovery came when Rumfelt allegedly told his parents and brother that he killed a woman, and that "it is wrapped up in carpet and has tape around it,” WDRB reported last month. At least one relative notified police who then responded to Rumfelt’s Vine Grove home, where Dunn was allegedly found in Rumfelt’s 1997 GMC Sierra.

When the authorities arrested Rumfelt, he allegedly had blood on his shirt and ears. He was also nursing a wound on his arm that required four stitches.

Rumfelt has also been charged with tampering with physical evidence and abuse of a corpse.

Dunn graduated from both Gatton Academy and the University of Kentucky, according to her obituary. She was a a national archery champion who worked in veterinary care. 

“Our hearts are hurting as we have learned that our friend and coworker was murdered earlier this week,” Elizabethtown Animal Hospital wrote on Facebook last month. “Meaghan Dunn has been a receptionist and assistant at our clinic for almost a year. She moved closer to WKU to pursue her pre-vet career and left us to work at a clinic nearer the college just a few short weeks ago. This loss has left us with questions we may never get answers to, but we are glad to have known her however briefly. We would like to extend our condolences to friends and family she leaves behind.”
