MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) -- Human remains found over the weekend in Hazen, Arkansas have been positively identified as those of a missing Cross County woman and a man has been charged, according to the sheriff of Prairie County, Arkansas.

Christy Rooks was last seen in mid-January leaving her boyfriend’s house in Hazen, which is about an hour from Wynne, Ark.

Police say information tied to her disappearance led law enforcement to a farm property and a residence between Des Arc and Hazen where the investigation and evidence recovery has been underway over the past two days.

Rooks’ remains were recovered from a field Saturday and positively identified on Monday.

Rooks’ boyfriend, Earl Parks, was charged with capital murder, abuse of a corpse, tampering with evidence and possession of a firearm.
