RALEIGH, N.C. — Another person is charged in the Linda Watts case.

Police in Detroit arrested 35-year-old Eric Quick on outstanding warrants from Sanford. He is charged with murder, rape and kidnapping.

Last week, Sanford police arrested three other men -- Phillip Bunnell, Gilbert Stone, Jr. and Frederick Spinks -- in connection with Watts' disappearance.

Watts disappeared almost two years ago after working her mailroom shift at the Sanford Herald newspaper. Police are still looking for her body.
