Atlanta – Police have arrested a suspect in the sexual assault and killing of a 7-year-old Georgia girl, police told CNN Wednesday. A news conference was slated for 1:45 p.m. ET.

The body of Jorelys Rivera was found three days after she went missing at an apartment complex in Canton, about 40 miles north of Atlanta.

Authorities have said that she died of blunt force trauma to the head, was stabbed and had been sexually assaulted.

The killer probably lives in the apartment complex where the child lived or had ready access to it, said Vernon Keenan, director of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
