LOS ANGELES, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors say a Southern California man jailed on suspicion of battering his girlfriend has been charged with killing the woman, who has been missing since July.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Wednesday that Robert Anthony Camou faces one count of murder. The charge comes with a special circumstance allegation of killing a witness and an allegation that he was out on bail when he committed the crime.

It wasn’t immediately known if the 27-year-old has an attorney.

A $10,000 reward has been offered as authorities search for 31-year-old Amanda Custer who formally lived in Bakersfield. She is a 2006 graduate of Liberty High School, according to her Facebook page.

Investigators believe Custer was taken against her will by Camou from the home they shared in Monrovia.

He had been facing domestic violence charges involving Custer dating back to April.

Earlier the investigation, a video showing Camou rapping about burying his girlfriend emerged.
