PARKER, Fla. (AP) - A Panhandle area police officer has been charged with killing a woman.

Bay County Sheriff Frank McKeithen said 43-year-old Mark Alan Bomia was arrested Saturday night and charged with murdering Anna Beach. Authorities released few details about Beach's death, only saying she was killed at her home. It's unclear if the two knew each other.

Autopsy results are pending. Additional details are expected to be released at a press conference Monday.

Early Saturday, search teams combed through thick brush around Beach's home and authorities said they were looking for a suspect described as potentially "armed and dangerous."

It's unclear if Bomia had legal counsel. An e-mail sent to the sheriff's office was not immediately returned Sunday.
