UPDATE

Authorities have identified the woman who police say was shot and killed by the man she lived with before she was found dead in the Roanoke River.

Police said DeAngelo Bonds, 22, shot and killed Adreonna Keffer, 18, of Roanoke, and then disposed of her body in the Roanoke River.

Keffer’s Facebook profile describes her and Bonds as engaged.

Court documents show police found “blood and casings” in the home the two shared.

Police said they saw what looked like a pool of blood outside the apartment door and found blood on the floor and walls. They also noticed drag marks down the stairs.

A rifle, magazines and a green leafy substance were also discovered by authorities.

Bonds was arrested on Monday and charged with second-degree murder.
