The man arrested in the stabbing death of an Ohio teenager whose body was found last week in a garbage company landfill near Grove City has been identified as 18 year-old Ricki Williams IV.

Williams was arrested in Youngstown early Tuesday evening and was to be arraigned on Wednesday.  He is currently lodged in the Mahoning County Jail in Ohio.

Williams is suspected in the death of 16 year-old Gina Burger, whose body was found by workers in a Pine Township landfill last Wednesday.  The girl had been reported missing two nights earlier.

An autopsy showed the victim had been stabbed in the chest, and while police are still trying to piece together their clues in the case, they say they know Williams had previously threatened Burger with a knife.

Police do not have an address listed for Williams.  They say he was known to have frequently moved around, staying in few places for more than a couple of weeks at a time.
