STOW -- Police say they have a woman in custody in connection with the death of a 21-year-old Stow woman.

Police at an afternoon news conference announced the arrest of Roxanne Lee Buck, 44, a roommate of the victim.

Buck is being held on a $1 million bond at the Summit County Jail after being arraigned on charges of murder and tampering with evidence.

Police say they have no information on a possible motive nor have they recovered the weapon used.

Officers found the body of Michelle Johnson on March 15. Johnson's mother asked officers to check on the welfare of her daughter since she hadn't heard from her in two days.

Police found Johnson's body underneath blankets in a shed at the home where she lived on Maplepark Road.

The Summit County Medical Examiner ruled the death a homicide and determined the cause of death was due to sharp force injuries to the neck.
