CLEVELAND

Authorities are searching for a man wanted in the slaying of a woman whose body was found in a garbage can at a vacant house in Cleveland.

Cleveland Heights police said Thursday that 35-year-old Yaphet Bradley has been charged with aggravated murder, gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence.

His ex-girlfriend’s body was found last week in Cleveland. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner says 31-year-old Miriam Johnson died from a gunshot wound to the head and stab wounds.

Police say Calvin Young, 24, of Cleveland, has been arrested on abuse of a corpse and other charges in Johnson’s slaying.
