- A Northern California couple was charged Monday in the gruesome murder of a 21-year-old volunteer sheriff.

Oakland prosecutors believe Laura Rodgers and her boyfriend Curtys Taylor planned for days the murder of Karla Ramirez-Segoviano, who was found stabbed and burned almost beyond recognition. The SF Gate reported that Rodgers and Taylor were charged with murder and ordered held without bail at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin.

The Alameda County district attorney’s office said Rodgers lured Ramirez-Segoviano to a creek bed in Arroyo Viejo Park where she was killed. Police said the two women were friends.

Authorities found Ramirez-Segoviano’s badly burned body on Thursday and the coroner’s office had a hard time getting a fingerprint off of it. Rodgers admitted to the murder and was arrested later that day and Taylor was arrested the next morning, police said.
