"During the course of the traffic stop, the trooper discovered human remains concealed inside the Mustang. The remains were transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Norfolk for examination, autopsy and positive identification," Sgt. Vick said.
Slaton was charged with concealment of a dead body and is being held at the City of Hampton Jail without bond.
The building owner where Slaton rents said that Slaton has been a tenant for two years. She described Slaton as a happy, friendly person with a bubbly personality.
She said the tenant was late on her rent one month but took a second job to make the payment. CBS 6 has learned that Slaton worked full-time at Integrative Health in Glen Allen, as a front desk manager.
