Man Charged After Missing Haverford Woman Sabrina DuBose's Body Found In Trash Bag In East Germantown

UPPER DARBY. Pa (CBS) -- Prosecutors say a suspect is in custody after confirming the body found in a trash bag in Philadelphia's East Germantown neighborhood Tuesday night is Sabrina DuBose, a woman who was reported missing out of Haverford Township just more than a month ago. Before leading police to a wooded vacant lot in East Germantown on Tuesday night, arrest papers show Kareem Davis-Duppins hid DuBose's body in an elevator shaft for a week at an Upper Darby apartment complex.

In late May, Davis-Duppins transferred DuBose's remains to the 5700 block of Musgrave Street in East Germantown, according to court documents filed on Wednesday.

Court documents claim Davis-Duppins offered a step-by-step statement of his actions.

Davis-Duppins claims he strangled DuBose following an argument over cash and drugs on May 22.
