DENTON (KRLD) - An arrest has been made in the murder of a missing mother of two.

20-year-old Jade Harris had been missing for nearly two weeks when fishermen found her body alongside Denton Creek.

She had been stabbed to death.

Friday, Denton County deputies arrested 21-year-old Tanner Brock and charged him with murder.

Harris' mother says she is still having trouble coming to grips with her daughter's death.

"When they confirmed the body was hers and matched her fingerprints, I died inside," Sorena Herrington says.

She says Brock had done jail time for assaulting her daughter before.

Herrington says she knew something horrible had happened because Harris' estranged husband found her car abandoned on the side of the road, just a few days prior to her body being found.

Harris' two children ages 2 and 1 are staying with her estranged husband's sister.

A go fund me page has been set up to help with funeral expenses.
