HOUSTON – A Houston man who has been arrested in a robbery case in northwest Harris County may also be connected to a body found in a burned car, according to investigators.    

Deputies say Derrick Worrell was arrested for allegedly robbing, grabbing and pushing a woman outside a LA Fitness. Another man was nearly carjacked in the same lot.

Investigators said Worrell was dating Felicia Minor, who hasn't been seen or heard from in more than a day.

Minor's burned car was found near West Road and Gessner on Monday, and a body was found in the back of the vehicle.  Authorities have not identified the body, but Minor’s family fears the worst.

Worrell has a history of domestic violence including a February attack on Minor, according to court records.
