    A man has been arrested in connection with the abduction and murder of a 13-year-old North Carolina girl, police said early Saturday.

    The Lumberton Police and FBI charged Michael McLellan, 34, with 10 felonies including first-degree murder and first-degree forcible rape in connection to the death of Hania Aguilar, NBC News reported. McLellan is being held at the Robeson County Detention Center without bail and is scheduled to have his first court appearance on Monday.

    The teen was kidnapped from her driveway on Nov. 5 when a suspect forced her into a family member's idling sport-utility vehicle, police said. Her family had been getting ready to drive her to a school bus stop.

    Witnesses reported hearing the girl scream and a man dressed in all black with a yellow bandanna across his face force her into the SUV and drive away, authorities have previously said.
