A desperate search for a missing man has come to an end with the discovery of his body and charges filed against his suspected killer.Ambrose Chaptmon is charged with the capital murder of Stacey Lockett. Investigators began looking for Lockett after a manager discovered blood in a motel room on the northwest side.

US marshals later tracked down two people in Lockett's vehicle, and shot one of them during a chase before taking both into custody.

On Wednesday, officers discovered Lockett's body dumped on the south side of Houston. Police say Chaptmon had lured Lockett to the motel with the intent to rob him.
