Spanevelo was arrested in Lebanon, Tennessee, on the morning of April 2 during a traffic stop and extradited back to Florida about a week ago. 

Carli’s remains were also found on April 2 in a shallow grave on an Alabama property that authorities say Spanevelo has a connection to.

The results of an autopsy are still pending and a spokesperson for the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office said last week that additional charges are unlikely until the death investigation is complete. 

An affidavit of complaint related to the initial charges said that Spanevelo provided false information to law enforcement “by not disclosing pertinent information about where he stopped along his route of returning home to Panama City Beach with [redacted] later that evening,” after he met with Carli on March 27.
