A Long Beach teenager has been arrested for allegedly killing an 18-year-old Lynbrook woman who was found dead on a Rockville Centre footbridge late last week, Nassau County police said.

Maxwell Sherman was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Lauren Daverin.

Police said the suspect, who is also 18, killed the victim, who was found on the Mill Pond footbridge between Sunrise Highway and Merrick Road late Thursday night. Police have not said how she was killed.
