LEAKESVILLE, MS (AP) -

Mississippi officials are charging an Alabama man with killing a teenager who had gone missing.

Greene County Sheriff Stanley McLeod tells the Greene County Herald that his office is charging 22-year-old Matthew Moberg of Wilmer, Alabama, with capital murder in the death of 16-year-old Brian Parker of Semmes, Alabama.

Parker had been reported missing in Alabama in May before officials found his body on a logging road in southern Greene County.

McLeod says the state crime lab is still determining the exact cause of death.

Parker was seen alive with Moberg on security video at a Lucedale store on May 23. After Parker's disappearance, Mobile County, Alabama, authorities said Moberg gave inconsistent statements regarding Parker's possible whereabouts.

Authorities reportedly found Parker's phone in Moberg's car.
