A North Carolina truck driver has been indicted on murder charges in the stabbing and beating death of a Knoxville woman whose nude body was found this week behind a gas station in Crab Orchard, Tenn.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said 32-year-old Alan Stacy Rogers of Pines, N.C., was indicted Friday by a special session of the Cumberland County Grand Jury.

Investigators said Rogers picked up 35-year-old Summer Nicole Nelms in the Knoxville area, killed her and then dumped her body.

The TBI said Rogers is being held in North Carolina without bond.
