MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A grand jury has indicted a 23-year-old man on a first-degree murder charge in the death of a St. Paul woman whose body was found in an impounded car.

Prosecutors say Alberto Palmer met the victim, 18-year-old Brittany Clardy, through an online escort ad and killed her with a hammer at a residence in Brooklyn Park Feb. 11. Clardy's body was found Feb. 19 in a car at the Columbia Heights impound lot.

Palmer had previously been charged with second-degree murder in Anoka County. The Star Tribune says he remains jailed on $2 million bond. His next court appearance is June 27.
