Teen raped, murdered--body stuffed in closet

Baltimore police say they've arrested a man suspected of raping and killing a 15-year-old boy, whose body was found hidden in a closet.

A Baltimore police spokesman says Dante Parrish was arrested last night in east Baltimore. Police had been searching for the 35-year-old Parrish in connection with the death of Jason Madison Jr. The boy had been gagged with a pillowcase, then stabbed in the neck and head. A police spokesman says the teen was also raped.

Parrish had recently been released from prison. He was convicted of second-degree murder for a 1999 slaying, but was freed in January after winning a new trial.
