BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The suspect in a 2007 Dorchester disappearance is being held without bail on murder charges. Felicia McGuyer, a mother of a then-ten year old boy, was last seen on October 7, 2007 around Roxton Street in Dorchester.

David Pena was McGuyer's boyfriend at the time she went missing. He was arrested in Florida on a different matter, but members of the Boston Police Fugitive Unit brought him back up to Boston. Despite never finding a body, officials unearthed enough evidence through interviews to get an arrest warrant in December and charge Pena with murdering McGuyer. There have been periodic attempts by Boston police to engage the public in the case.

Prosecutors say some of that evidence and the details of the case will come to light at McGuyer's arraignment on Tuesday.

Suffolk D.A. Kevin Hayden said Pena's arrest would give McGuyer's family closure.

“While Mr. Pena’s arrest and arraignment can never erase their grief, it can at least provide the knowledge that someone will be held accountable for her death,” he said.

Pena will return to court on Feb. 17 for a probable cause hearing.
