A Collin County man is accused of dragging a woman behind a vehicle Thursday morning.

The Collin County Sheriff's Department said it got a call just after 8:00 a.m. that a man had dragged his girlfriend an unknown distance and that she was possibly dead.

When deputies arrived they discovered a woman's body with a rope around her neck in a field off County Road 209 near Weston.

The Collin County Sheriff's Office says Theron Wayne Johnson, 47, told deputies the woman put the rope around her neck and tied it to the vehicle's bumper.

The Collin County Medical Examiner's Office will identify the woman and rule on her cause of death.

Johnson was booked into the Collin County Detention Facility on a charge of murder.
