OWINGSVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A central Kentucky man has been arrested and charged with killing a 4-year-old Florida girl whose remains have never been found.

Kentucky State Police and federal agents took 42-year-old Keith Allen Wilson into custody Tuesday morning at his Bath County home. The arrest came after the Charlotte County, Fla., Sheriff's Office asked that Wilson be picked up.

The arrest came after Wilson's former girlfriend, Melissa Harding-Jones, pleaded guilty to being an accessory after the fact in court in Charlotte County, Fla.,

Wilson is charged with killing Pilar Rodriguez, a child who was reported missing in January 1999.

Harding-Jones worked as a baby sitter for Rodriguez. Wilson was being held in the Montgomery County Regional Jail while awaiting extradition to Florida.
