A Buffalo man has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with the discovery of a woman's body near Buffalo's Central Terminal on Saturday.

Antonio Lee, 30, was arraigned in Buffalo City Court Monday morning. Lee is accused of causing the death of Marguerite Reading, 53. Her body was found by a passerby on the 400 block of Paderewski Drive around 12:45 p.m. Saturday, according to Buffalo Police.

An autopsy is being conducted to determine Reading's cause of death, but a police spokesman says she was stabbed.

As the investigation continues, Lee is being held without bail pending a Friday court appearance. If convicted of the second-degree murder charge, he would face a maximum to 25 years to life in prison.
