WASHINGTON – A man has been charged with killing his wife and may be traveling with an 8-year-old D.C. girl who has been missing for more than three weeks, authorities said.

Prince George’s County Police have obtained an arrest warrant charging Kahlil Malik Tatum, 51, of Southeast Washington with murder in the death of his wife, Andrea Denise Tatum, the police department said in a news release.

The body of Andrea Tatum, 51, was found Thursday in a motel room in Oxon Hill, where Prince George’s County officers had gone to assist the Metropolitan Police Department in its search for Relisha Tenau Rudd, who was reporting missing earlier in the week.

Relisha had been staying at the D.C. General family shelter with her mother and stepfather for the past 18 months. Kahlil Tatum worked as a janitor at the shelter and knew Relisha and her family, authorities say.
