New Orleans, La. -

Police report an arrest has been made in the killing of a New Orleans man whose remains were located this week in St. Bernard Parish.

"Members of the NOPD's 7th District's Task Force arrested 35-year-old Michael Vicknair for the murder of Jeffrey Bonck," reads a brief advisory from NOPD. "Vicknair was booked into Central Lockup and charged with One Count of Second Degree Murder and Obstruction of Justice."

55-year-old Jeffrey Bonck's remains were found in St. Bernard Parish Tuesday.  The Orleans Parish coroner says Bonck was beaten to death.

Investigators combed a wooded area off Florrisant Highway Tuesday, working on a tip in the investigation of Bonck's disappearance and recovered the badly-decomposed body. Bonck had been missing since August.
