Bridges stabbed 20-year-old Cemia Dove multiple times on Jan. 5, the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office said. The 36-year-old Cleveland man then left Dove’s body in a retention pond on McKenzie Road, police said. Dove was reported missing on March 27. On April 17, officers were called to the pond, where they found the body floating. Police said there was a concrete block and steel pipe tied to the body.
