BUCKS COUNTY --  A man from Montgomery County is charged with raping and then killing 14-year-old Grace Packer.

The body was found this past Halloween in Bear Creek Township, Luzerne County.

Packer was from Montgomery County and was reported missing by her mother this past July.

Police charged Jacob Sullivan, 44, of Horsham in Montgomery County. Court papers show Sullivan sexually assaulted the girl and then killed her in the attic of a home near Quakertown in Bucks County. He cut up the body, drove to Luzerne County, and dumped it.

Sullivan is held without bail, and the Bucks County district attorney says he could face the death penalty.

Packer's adoptive mother, Sara, had been considered a person of interest in the homicide and was charged late last year in connection with her disappearance.

She's accused of withholding information from investigators and child endangerment.
