JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A 41-year-old Jacksonville woman is accused of killing her boyfriend whose decomposing body was found sealed on her front porch.

The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/1N8D1c2 ) reports Tammy Shereese Wright-Conner was charged Thursday with the death of 48-year-old Ronald Jerome Trotter Jr.

Officials say his body was found on her porch June 10 after neighbors noticed a foul smell.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, Trotter left a family outing on May 25 after an argument with his wife. She reported him missing May 30.

Lt. Steve Gallaher says Trotter's wife told police she believed he went to Wright-Connor's house.

Wright-Connor has been arrested three times since June and has been jailed since mid-July. She's charged with murder.

Gallaher said he didn't have a motive in the killing.

It's unclear whether she has a lawyer.
