SAN DIEGO (AP) - A woman arrested in the mysterious slaying of a Camp Pendleton Marine's wife will be charged with first-degree murder. 

San Diego County District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis released no details of evidence or motive during Thursday's announcement that Jessica Lynn Lopez will be charged in the death of 22-year-old Brittany Dawn Killgore. 

Killgore disappeared last week, triggering a search that led to discovery of her body in neighboring Riverside County. 

During the investigation another Camp Pendleton Marine, Louis Ray Perez, was arrested on a weapons charge. Dumanis says he remains a person of interest in the Killgore case. 

Killgore's husband is en route home from Afghanistan.
