McVay, 39, of Rock Island, Illinois, is charged with first-degree murder and concealment of a homicidal death, Rock Island County State’s Attorney John McGehee said.

The 29-year-old Olson was last seen in December 2013. Her body was found April 5, 2014, in a wooded area near Hastings, Minn., about 300 miles north of the Quad-Cities.

McVay was arrested Friday morning at a work site in Silvis and taken into custody without incident, McGehee said.

He is being held in the Rock Island County Jail on a $1.5 million bond.

Charges claim the homicide occurred within the city of Rock Island.

“This has been a long investigation between Rock Island and Davenport police as well as authorities in Minnesota,” McGehee said. “We’ve been working for several months to bring about this morning’s charges.”
