A Louisiana man faces Capital Murder charges for the death of a Dallas woman found in a burning jeep.

On Friday, December 21, Dallas police arrested Mark Guida of The Colony. They say he dated 36-year-old Jerie Ann McCloud.  Guida also recently moved in with McCloud and her three children.

On Thursday, December 20 at 8:00 p.m., officers found McCloud's body inside the burning vehicle, located in the 2100 block of Manana Drive in Dallas. The Dallas Medical Examiner said McCloud died by strangulation.

Witnesses identified Guida's SUV parked across the street from where McCloud was found. Police also recovered a one gallon red plastic gas container near the burning vehicle.

Police said Guida purchased two gas cans and two gallons of gasoline prior to Friday's incident. When questioned, police say Guida refused to answer questions about those purchases.

Officers have not released the motive in this crime.
