ATHENS, Greece -

ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Police on the Greek island of Crete say a 27-year-old man will be charged with murder in the slaying of a Byram Hills High School graduate Suzanne Eaton, whose body was found last week in a tunnel used as a storage site during World War II.
 
Crete Police chief Lt. Gen. Constantine Lagoudakis told reporters Tuesday that the suspect, a Greek man from the island, had confessed to the "violent criminal act" and would be charged. A second man has been detained for questioning as an alleged accomplice.
 
Easton, a 59-year-old molecular biologist, was attending a conference near the port of Chania and was last seen on July 2. Her body was found six days later after an extensive search.
