A Chicago man has been charged with the murder of a South Bend woman found injured on the side of I-65 in Jasper County on Thursday.

Nathan Huey-Dingle, 30, was charged on Monday with murder; aggravated battery; promoting prostitution; intimidation; criminal confinement; and two counts of operating while intoxicated.

Those charges stem from an investigation begun when a woman later identified as Rachael Savanna Woods, 20, was found on the shoulder of the southbound lanes of I-65 at the 211 mile marker, four miles south of the Rensselaer exit.

Woods was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital, where she later died.

Woods had been one of the passengers in a a 2002 Buick SUV, police said, and Huey-Dingle another. Huey-Dingle was taken into custody at the scene on an active warrant. He is currently being held at the Jasper County Jail.
