SEATTLE, Wash.- A 19-year-old man accused of killing his 17-year-old ex-girlfriend and setting her house on fire has been charged with first-degree murder and arson.

Police arrested Jarod Lane Monday in Oklahoma after officers spotted his abandoned car on the shoulder of Interstate 35.

Lane has waived extradition.

An autopsy shows Jessica Scholl died from several stab wounds, blunt force injuries, and possible strangulation.
