SULLIVAN, Indiana — Indiana State Police say an arrest has been made in the death of a pregnant Sullivan woman who went missing in November.

Authorities say 32-year-old Johnus Luke Orr of Sullivan was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with two counts of murder in the death of Tiffanie Adams. Sullivan County Sheriff Clark Cottom says Orr is Adams' stepbrother.

The 20-year-old Adams was reported missing on Nov. 7. She was last seen walking from her father's home to her mother's house, nearly one block away. Her body was found Dec. 30 by a farmer harvesting corn in a field northeast of Sullivan.

Sullivan County Prosecutor John Springer has not released details of the case against Orr, who is jailed without bond.

It wasn't immediately clear whether Orr has an attorney.
