Authorities say a parolee has been charged in the 2005 death of a 23-year-old suburban Chicago woman.

Twenty-nine-year-old Travon McDonald of Hickory Hills faces first-degree murder in the death of Nayely Murry of Cicero. McDonald is charged with suffocating Murry, hiding her body in the trunk of a vehicle and trying to set it on fire.

The Chicago Tribune reports ( ) McDonald was ordered held without bail in Cook County bond court on Saturday.

Assistant State's Attorney Nicholas Kantas says Murry had been reported missing two days before her body was found.

Court records show that McDonald had been released on parole last week from an Illinois Department of Corrections facility. He had been convicted in April of aggravated battery and failing to report an accident causing injury or death.
