A man was arrested in the killing of a 20-year-old pregnant woman found dead in a Staten Island park after she had been missing for 11 days.

Megan Marotte, of Graniteville, was last seen Aug. 4 before police found her body in Willowbrook Park on Thursday around 5:20 p.m. Pedro Martin, 27, was arrested and charged with her murder Sunday, police said.

Police said there were no obvious signs of trauma to Marotte's body. As of Sunday afternoon, the medical examiner had not determined the cause of death.

Her body was found after police responded to a report of a foul odor in the park, which is about a mile and a half from where she was last seen.

She was reported missing on Aug. 7, police said.
