A United Airlines flight attendant found dead in the trunk of a car in Gary, Indiana, on Monday was allegedly killed by her 17-year-old daughter's boyfriend, according to court documents. 

Damarius Wren, 18, is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of 54-year-old DeCarol Deloney-Cain of Crown Point.

Deloney-Cain's body was discovered in a burgundy 2008 Toyota Solara in a remote wooded area in the 2000 block of East 22nd Place.

According to court documents, the killing took place at the victim's Crown Point home on July 3. Authorities say the daughter was present in the home when Wren attacked her mother.

Wren allegedly lost control, placed a pillow case over Deloney-Cain's head and began repeatedly smashing her head against a staircase in the basement before stabbing her to death. Wren is accused of calling two friends who came over and helped wrap the woman in plastic garbage bags, placed it in the trunk of her car and abandoned it in Gary.
 
Authorities say police were able to piece the crime together after a friend of the victim was over at the house and noticed blood stains in the basement.

"I do commend the Gary Police Department for coming up with charges as quick as they did," the victim's brother, Todd Deloney said.

More charges could be filed in the case. Wren is being held without bond.

Deloney-Cain worked for United for around 25 years.
