RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The mother of a Fort Bragg soldier who disappeared more than two years ago says police were led to her daughter’s grave by the suspect now charged with her killing.

Johnna Henson of St. Cloud, Florida, said Thursday that Fayetteville police called her Wednesday to say they were led to the remains of 23-year-old Pfc. Kelli Bordeaux.

Twenty-seven-year-old Nicholas Holbert is charged with killing Bordeaux. Police say he went to a Fayetteville bar with Bordeaux where she was last seen in April 2012. Holbert is scheduled for a first court appearance Thursday on charges of first-degree murder and first-degree kidnapping.

Henson says Holbert led investigators to Bordeaux’s grave in a densely wooded area about four miles from the bar where her daughter and Holbert went for drinks and karaoke.
