A second Virginia Tech student has been arrested in the death of a 13-year-old girl who disappeared from her Blacksburg, Virginia home last week.

Blacksburg Police say Natalie Keepers, 19, is being held without bond at the Montgomery County Jail on one felony count of improper disposal of a dead body and one misdemeanor count of accessory after the fact in the commission of a felony.

She is being held in the death of Nicole Madison Lovell, who disappeared from her home late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

Another Virginia Tech student, David Eisenhauer 18, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of the 13-year-old girl whose remains were found in North Carolina.

Blacksburg, Virginia, police said late Saturday that Nicole Madison Lovell's body was found in Surrey County, North Carolina.

Earlier Saturday, police arrested David Eisenhauer, an 18-year-old Virginia Tech freshman from Columbia, Maryland, and charged him with abduction. He was charged with murder once the girl's remains were found.

The girl had been missing since last week. Her family says she pushed a dresser in front of her bedroom door and climbed out a window Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Eisenhauer ran cross country at Virginia Tech. He is being held without bond at Montgomery County jail.

Police say Lovell's remains will be sent to the medical examiner's office in Roanoke, Virginia for an autopsy.
